FSU’s Jimbo Fisher remains mum about starting QB
TALLAHASSEE — Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher remained tight-lipped Wednesday about who will be the Seminoles starting quarterback.
Speaking after the second and final scrimmage — which was closed to the media — Fisher said he had not decided on who would start at Pittsburgh on Sept. 2, Jameis Winston or Jacob Coker.
“I was pleased with Jameis and Jacob today from just standing on the sidelines,” Fisher said. “I thought both guys handled the huddle well, made plays, got the ball down the field vertically and dumped it off. I was very pleased with how they played in this scrimmage.”
Fisher said he would review film and discuss the quarterback decision with the FSU assistant coaches.
One indication a decision could be announced soon was that Fisher said the team would begin installation of the game plan forr Pitt on Friday. That means either Winston or Coker likely will be seeing more time with the Seminoles’ first-team offense.
“It’s a tough decision but it’s a great decision because you always have to have two great quarterbacks,” Fisher said.
Fisher also said receiver Rashad Greene would be held out of practice for a few more days but should be ready for the opener.
Greene, who led the Seminoles last season with 57 receptions for 741 yards and six touchdowns, hurt a finger on his left hand late in Monday’s practice. He wasn’t expected to practice again until the swelling goes down.
“I’ll probably hold him until Saturday or Monday,” Fisher said. “Let things heal. He had a great camp anyway.”
