Tallahassee, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Coach Jimbo Fisher will get a new five-year deal from Florida State that will pay him more than $4 million, annually making him ninth of the nation’s highest-paid coaches.
Fisher previously was paid $2.75 million per season.
In his fourth season as head coach, Jimbo Fisher led the Florida State Seminoles to a perfect regular season record of 13-0, No. 1 ranking in the country and its second ACC championship in dominating Duke.
The Seminoles led the Blue Devils 38-0 after three quarters Saturday night en route to a winning score of 45-7.
Fisher will try to lead the Seminoles to the third national championship in school history against No.3 Auburn on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, California. His star quarterback, Jameis Winston, is expected to win the Heisman Trophy next weekend.
Replacing legendary head coach Bobby Bowden in January 2010, Fisher now has a 44-10 record in his first four seasons as a head coach.
