No one knows for fact, but reports from Texas and FSU sources seem to indicate this. And does it really matter if the agent went to FSU or if FSU went to his agent to get bigger numbers? At some point Fisher's agent probably told FSU the numbers being floated by Texas and FSU talked to his agent and worked out what it would likely take to keep him since they don't have as deep pockets.
Fisher has a good thing going at FSU and is loaded for NC runs for the next couple of years, whilst Texas would be a rebuild and their boosters and fans would expect fast results, especially after seeing Auburn do it and if their new coach is being paid $6-7M per year.
