Jimbo Fisher, wife Candi release statement announcing divorce
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher and his wife Candi released a joint statement on Friday announcing that they are separating.
“After almost 22 years of marriage, we have decided to amicably separate,” the statement read, via The Palm Beach Post. “Thank you to our family and friends, and the fans who have offered kind words and support.
“Although we are in the public eye, we appreciate respect for the privacy of our children and our family, and humbly request only positive, accurate discussions surrounding our situation during this difficult time.
“In 2011, when our son Ethan was diagnosed with Fanconi anemia (FA), we co-founded Kidz1stFund to increase awareness and raise money for research for this rare, life-threatening blood disorder. Parenting our children and Kidz1stFund will remain an aligned focus of our family.”
Jimbo, 49, and Candi, 46, have two sons together. Rumors of their divorce began circulating earlier this month on SEC message boards, where fans accused Candi of some pretty nasty stuff.
