Report: Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher signs contract extension
Reports surfaced before Florida State’s Dec. 7 ACC Championship Game win over Duke that Jimbo Fisher had agreed to a contract extension to remain the Seminoles’ coach.
Now, according to a Warchant.com report, all the terms of Fisher’s new deal have been finalized and the agreement has been signed.
Full details were not available, but the new deal reportedly will pay Fisher a base salary of over $4.1 million a year, according to Warchant, is “very ‘incentive laden.’”
Whether the signing of the contract extension will quell the Fisher-to-Texas rumors remain to be seen. However, according to Warchant, a source close to Fisher says he is happy in Tallahassee and isn’t interested in the opening at Texas.
The Longhorns have reportedly narrowed their list of potential coaches to Fisher, Baylor’s Art Briles, Vanderbilt’s James Franklin and Louisville’s Charlie Strong.
In his fourth season at Florida State, Fisher is 44-10.
The Seminoles face Auburn for the BCS National Championship game on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif.
