Jimbo Fisher gets $4.75M raise
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State's Jimbo Fisher has received a $4.75 million raise following his first season as the Seminoles' football coach.
Fisher has signed a five-year, $13.75 million contract that runs until January 2016. He receives an annual pay raise of $950,000, which will come from Fisher's radio and television shows and public appearances.
His $225,000 annual base salary and several bonus provisions were unchanged.
The deal requires Fisher to reimburse the school $2 million if he leaves before the end of the contract.
The Seminoles finished 10-4 in Fisher's first year after taking over for Bobby Bowden.
The school also released a copy of offensive line coach Rick Trickett's three-year contract that will pay him $400,000 annually.
