Florida State coaching staff working well together and actually liking one another

As we discussed here last season, many of us felt the stories of infighting and power struggles between coaches, the USF pre-game shouting match which almost turned physical between coaches, in front of the players, when Coach Bowden was reportedly hamming it up with Alabama buddies and nowhere to be found to give his pre-game pep talk, racial slurs resulting in one assistant coach decking another, and a sucker punch on the plane ride back from BC, were not just rumors, but actual happenings on our then dysfunctional coaching staff. So reading reports like this one from Andrew Carter are a much needed breath of fresh air, a welcome relief, and a sign of special things that are forthcoming as we are about to start the Jimbo Fisher era here at FSU. That hadn't been the norm here for a while, although nobody would come out say so. But rumors of a dysfunctional staff at Florida State persisted so much — especially last season — that they ceased to be rumors. They became reality. -and- In years past Florida State's divided staff created a divided team. The offense and defense rarely met together and rarely worked together. The locker room was separated by position segments, so that some offensive and defensive players rarely interacted. Fisher has emphasized unity. Gone are the locker room divisions. The team spends time together as a whole. The Seminoles recently had their first night out at the movies — players, coaches, everybody.
