It has been, to say the least, a difficult offseason for Jimbo Fisher. The Florida State football coach has faced a handful of in-team issues, ranging from assault charges to his players to actually removing some of those players from the roster. Then, there have been his off-the-field issues. Or rather, more specifically, his family issues. Fisher and his wife Candi announced that they were separating, and consulting divorce lawyers, in June and the announcement sent shockwaves through the Semioles community. But while Fisher's relationship with Candi may be altered somewhat this season, their determination to be the best parents possible to their two sons has not shifted at all. The same holds true for the rest of the Fisher clan, whose West Virginia upbringing instilled blue collar values that continue to impact Jimbo to this day. Click through the gallery to learn more about the Fisher family and how they've overcome those offseason obstacles. (Twitter)
