FSU’s Jimbo Fisher reportedly receives raise, extension
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jimbo Fisher’s success in 2013 has earned him a significant raise and a long-term extension.
Fisher will earn $4.1 million annually, a bump from his current salary of $2.75 million in 2013, according to a report by the Palm Beach Post just before Florida State and Duke kicked off Saturday night.
Going into Saturday’s ACC championship game, Fisher was 43-10 in four seasons at Florida State. His .811 winning percentage is the highest of any coach in ACC history.
He had led the Seminoles to the 2012 ACC title and an Orange Bowl win over Northern Illinois.
If Florida State wins the ACC championship game on Saturday night, Fisher and the Seminoles will be playing for the BCS title on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif.
Fisher’s current contract is loaded with incentives for winning the division ($50,000), claiming the ACC title ($50,000), participating in a national championship game ($125,000), and winning a national title ($125,000). If FSU finishes in the top 5, he will earn an additional $100,000. And if FSU goes unbeaten, he will also earn $100,000.
