Report: FSU and Fisher agree to new deal
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
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.
