Jimbo Fisher on Wednesday said he plans to remain the coach of theFlorida State Seminoles"for a long time."

Fisher, who is in his seventh season at FSU, is rumored to be an LSUtarget after the school fired Les Miles.

"I love this university," Fisher said Wednesday, "and I plan on being here for a long time. I love Florida State, and that's all I'm saying. Anything else is clutter and does not concern me and is not involving me."

On Monday, when asked about the LSU opening, Fisher said he hasn't been contacted and would not talk about LSU. He was an assistant coach at LSU under Nick Saban and Miles from 2000 to 2006, including the 2003 national championship season.

Fisher is 71-15 as Florida State's coach and has won three ACC championships and a national title.
