NCAAF: Florida State, Fisher Agree On Five-Year Pact, Worth $1.8M Per Season

December 19, 2009

Tallahassee, FL, U.S.- The Florida State Seminoles officially hired offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher as its newest head coach starting next season, according to various media outfits Saturday.

Fisher signed a five-year, $1.8 million per season deal with the Seminoles, excluding bonuses that could go as high as $675,000.

However, if he leaves the school within the first three years, his buyout will be $675,000 and $450,000 if he decides to leave in the last two years of his contract.

Fisher started his career in Samford as offensive coordinator and moved up to major football programs, such as Auburn, Cincinnati, LSU, and Florida State.

Florida State is scheduled to play  West Virginia in the New Year’s Day Gator Bowl, which will be Seminoles’ retiring coach Bobby Bowden’s last game.

On January 5, Fisher will begin his job as the ninth coach in Florida State’s college football history.

UA defensive coordinator Mark Stoops will take the same position at Florida State after the Wildcats’ Dec. 30 game against Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl.
