Chuck Amato Speaks on Spat with Jimbo Fisher

It's now the fight that never happened... According to FSU linebackers Coach Chuck Amato, he and Head Coach-in-Waiting Jimbo Fisher never had the reported verbal or "fist fight" prior to the USF game 2 weeks ago at Doak Campbell Stadium...

Several media outlets have had a field day describing the tension between both coaches, and even stating that the alleged pregame fight took place when Head Coach Bobby Bowden was unable to make his pregame speech, and delegated that role to Jimbo Fisher... It should be noted that no players or members of the coaching staff have confirmed any fight whatsoever between Amato & Fisher. And earlier Thursday evening, Amato insisted that it's all just "crazy talk"

"We haven't even had words. I tried to hire him twice. We're extremely good friends. How can these things happen. How can people say that there was a fight on an airplane? Did the pilot tell ya? There were none." said FSU Executive Head Coach and Linebackers Coach Chuck Amato.
