Jimbo Fisher statement on Mark Stoops

By Heather Dinich

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher released the following statement about Mark Stoops being hired as Kentucky's next head coach:

"I am extremely happy for Mark and his family. He has done a tremendous job for us here as a defensive coordinator and he is a vital part of our staff. I always say you want the people who work for you to advance and reach their goals and aspirations and I couldn't be happier. He has done a super job for us and this opportunity is well deserved. He is very well prepared and I think he will do one heck of a job for the University of Kentucky. I was very fortunate to have him on our staff and consider him a good friend."
