Details Released on Fisher's FSU Extension

Tallahassee, FL --- A public records request led to the official release of Jimbo Fisher's contract extension he officially signed with FSU earlier this week.

The five year deal not only keeps Jimbo Fisher in the garnet and gold through the 2018 season, but also makes him one of the top ten paid coaches in all of college football.

Fisher was previously getting $2.75 million this season, but now, will take home over $3.5 million total next season. That number increases to over $4.5 million in the final year.

That's all before counting performance bonuses that max out at to almost $1.6 million.

As for what would happen if Jimbo were to ever say leave for another job, like some worried could've been a possibility with the Texas coaching search, Fisher would have to personally buy out the deals off any of his assistant coaches that wouldn't be held on to by the incoming head coach.

As for Fisher's many performance-based incentives, here's a list of payouts that

$100,000 for an ACC division title
$100,000 for an ACC conference title
$75,000 for making the college football playoffs
$200,000 for making the national championship game
$200,000 for winning the national championship game
$100,000 for a non-national championship game major bowl game
$50,000 for a non-major bowl game
$200,000 for a top-five finish in the AP Poll
$100,000 for a top-10 finish in the AP Poll
$200,000 for an undefeated season
$75,000 for winning National Coach of the Year
$50,000 for ACC Coach of the Year
$25,000 for a graduation rate between 65% and 84%
$50,000 for a graduation rate above 84%
$25,000 for an APR rating of .930 or higher

Jimbo will also receive an extra $100,000 for completing his contract every year of the new deal. He can also make a maximum of $125,000 for running a football summer camp every year.
