FSU's Fisher Signs 5-Year Deal

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State's new football coach Jimbo Fisher has agreed to a five-year contract worth $1.8 million annually, not including incentives.

Fisher, currently FSU's offensive coordinator, will take over from coach Bobby Bowden on Jan. 5. Bowden will coach his final game Jan. 1 in the Gator Bowl against West Virginia, where he'd been before coming to Tallahassee 33 years ago.

The incentives include $50,000 for winning an Atlantic Coast Conference division title, $50,000 for the ACC championship, $125,000 for appearing in the national championship game and another $125,000 for winning it.

Finishing in the top five of The Associated Press poll would give him $100,000 while making the top 10 would be worth $50,000.
