Winston jokes he'd follow Fisher to Texas

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Jameis Winston said he joked with Jimbo Fisher about speculation the coach will leave Florida State for Texas, and said if it happens he'd want to go, too.

The Heisman Trophy winner met with the media Friday in the lead up to the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn.

He says he and his teammates have not concerned themselves with the speculation and reports about Fisher being a candidate to replace Mack Brown at Texas.

He added, jokingly: ''Even if Coach Fisher goes to Texas, I'm going to ask him can I go with you? Yeah, I'm serious. He's my coach.''

Fisher chuckled when heard about Winston's joke.

''He and I have a tremendous relationship,'' Fisher said. ''I think the world of him. He and I are very close, but we'll be right here.''

Fisher said he has not heard from Texas, but knows his name will remain in the rumor mill.

''It doesn't matter what I say, y'all are going to write what the heck you want until someone takes that job,'' Fisher said with a laugh. ''So, we're not going down that road. We're going to worry about a national championship right here. That's what I'm focused on and happy about.''
