    Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher cut an interview session with media Monday short after reporters starting asking about the off-field issues surrounding quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Fisher, whose team is on a bye week, was speaking at the Birmingham Monday Morning Quarterback Club near Winston’s hometown. He was asked whether there was any news regarding the student code of conduct hearing and replied: "We're moving on with Louisville and talking about the other things. Everything should be great."

    However, the questions didn’t stop there.

    Another reporter noted that Fisher’s reputation had taken a hit and Fisher asked him to stop asking the question.

    “I’m done,” Fisher said. “I’m done.”

    Fisher then asked the reporter if he was going to put the interview on air and the reporter said he wasn’t, which caused Fisher to give one final answer.

    "Why is my reputation taking a hit? For backing a kid who has done nothing wrong?" Fisher said. "I don't want to get into this. The questions weren't supposed to be asked today. I'm done. I'm done."
