How is Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher taking former Seminole backup quarterback Jacob Coker's transfer to Alabama? It doesn't seem to be bothering him too much. In fact, Fisher predicted on Mobile sports talk station WNSP-FM that Coker will have a successful season in Tuscaloosa.

 "Jacob Coker is an outstanding young man, first and foremost," Fisher told WNSP. "He's a tremendous human being. As an athlete, he is a tremendous player. I think he is going to be a very high draft pick in the NFL. He has that type of potential."
Coker transferred to Alabama following his graduation from FSU. He had been the back-up to reigning Heisman Trophy-winner Jameis Winston in Tallahassee.

Fisher is obviously not sweating the loss of Coker. On the other hand, Fisher probably wishes he had a solid back-up for Winston if the latter's off-the-field incidents continue to rack up.
