FSU: Stoops Builds Country’s Top Defense

[1]TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State defensive coordinator Mark Stoops’ goal is to become the third brother in college football’s famed coaching family to lead his own program.

The 45-year-old’s resume is much stronger after building one of the nation’s top defenses.

Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman and head coach Jimbo Fisher both believe Stoops will be a valuable catch for any school looking for a head coach.

And though Stoops’ opportunity could sooner than later, it won’t happen before the end of the season.

That means Stoops and the 10th-ranked Seminoles have some unfinished business — starting with Saturday’s showdown with intrastate rival No. 6 Florida. The Gators (10-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) have managed a lone touchdown in successive losses to the Seminoles i(10-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) the past two seasons.
