Report: FSU and Fisher agree to new deal

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that Florida State and coach

Jimbo Fisher have agreed to new contract that will pay him about

$4.1 million per year.

The top-ranked Seminoles were playing No. 20 Duke in the

Atlantic Coast Conference championship on Saturday night when the

newspaper reported a new deal for Fisher, citing unidentified

sources. The deal will reportedly be for between five and seven

years.

Florida State spokesman Elliott Finebloom says the school cannot

confirm the report.

Fisher’s current deal pays him $2.75 million. The new deal would

put him among the highest paid coaches in the country. Fisher is

43-10 in four seasons at Florida State since taking over for Bobby

Bowden.
