Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher spoke to media members before a speaking engagement at Monday Morning Quarterback Club on Monday in Birmingham, Ala.

Some of those media members asked Fisher about his quarterback Jameis Winston’s potential disciplinary hearing, as well as whether or not he believed Winston’s behavior had affected Fisher’s reputation. Fisher grew visibly upset and cut the interview short. You can see it above starting at the 1:53 mark.

It’s not hard to understand why Fisher got so upset. He gave a short response to the first question regarding the disciplinary hearing. He got really angry when a second report followed up by asking (I think, it’s somewhat hard to hear) if Fisher’s reputation had been hurt by the issues with Winston.

It’s a fair-ish question, but one that’s hard to answer. What is Fisher supposed to say? “Yes, I believe my reputation is in tatters?”
