While it is true that he received a substantial raise from A&M--two million per year based on what I recall, 5.5 to 7.5MM--I can't agree with the mercenary descriptor. One, we're talking about A&M who historically has over payed for everything. Remember, Sumlin getting 5 million a year when he was hired that was based on ... ? And two, it's been discussed for at least four years how much tension there was between FSU administration and Jimbo. He's been looking for a way out for quite some time. Personal opinion: I'm sure you've heard of "stream of consciousness" when describing writing styles. I've seen what I interpret to be the same in speaking. As fast as Jimbo talks he doesn't appear to me as a guy who deeply thinks through responses. One thing that struck me yesterday during the SECMD was his response to a question about the LSU offer. He began with "Unfortunately,..." To me, that was an odd choice of words to use. But, I also believe it shows the LSU job was under serious consideration. All that said he is a guy that believes in himself. It's really close to the point of "it's all about me." That was evidenced by a lot of what he said yesterday. I coached a team that ended the SEC title winning streak. I turned around the FSU program in a matter of a few years. However, if you think about that. If you think about his personality it's truly a fit for the A&M culture--bigger in perception than reality. So far that's fit with A&M.
