Florida Sate head coach Jimbo Fisher was a guest on WDAE-620 AM with morning hosts Tom Jones and Rick Stroud on Friday and went off on some of the reports about Jameis Winston, calling them character assassination and half truths.
Fisher also talked with Jones and Stroud about having Winston as his starting quarterback the past two seasons and raved about his leadership qualities and why he thinks he will be a successful NFL quarterback.
Of course, what else would you expect from a coach, but Fisher who has been vocal in his support for Winston over the last 15 months, certainly sounded passionate and sincere.
But make up your own mind, and listen to the full interview below.
