Jimbo Fisher has added an NFL veteran to his staff.
Antonio Cromartie, a four-time Pro Bowl selection whose career included stops with the Chargers, Jets, Cardinals, and Colts has joined the Aggies program.
Multiple reports share that he will serve as a defensive graduate assistant and has already started recruiting for the program.
Cromartie is a former first-round pick out of Florida State in the 20016 NFL Draft, who also excelled at track for the Seminoles during his college days. He totaled over 400 tackles and 31 interceptions during his time in the league.
Fisher’s tenure at Florida State started just as Cromartie was leaving Tallahassee for the NFL. Jimbo spent the 2006 season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at LSU before leaving for the same post at Florida State in 2007. Jimbo took over the head coaching job at Florida State from 2010-17 and did a lot to connect with the program’s football alumni.
Cromartie, who had been working as a trainer for high school players in the Houston area, announced his arrival via Twitter, along with a thanks to Fisher for bringing him on board.
