Jimbo Fisher is in Tallahassee to stay, at least for the next five years. On Tuesday, Warchant.com reported that Fisher and Florida State had finalized a new contract worth $4.1 million per year. The deal will run through the 2018 season, and is nearly 1.5 times his current salary of $2.75 million.

“We are extremely pleased with the direction of our program and believe that this new contract will assure that Coach Fisher is in place to lead the Seminoles for a long time to come,” FSU athletic director Stan Wilcox stated.

“Coach Fisher enjoys the full support of the leadership of the university and we look forward to the continued success of our football program on the field and in the classroom.”

The new contract, which will place him among the highest paid coaches in college football, also lays out several incentives which could further compensate Fisher.

Florida State has recorded a 44-10 overall record while under Fisher’s direction. The Seminoles will attempt to add to the win total on Monday, Jan. 6 against Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. If FSU wins, it will be the third title in program history, and the first since the 1999 season.
