TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – It appears the Florida State Seminoles won’t have to worry about head coach Jimbo Fisher leaving Tallahassee any time soon.
According to Warchant.com, Fisher signed a five-year contract extension with the school shortly before leaving town for the BCS National Championship Game on Tuesday.
The Orlando Sentinel reported previously that Fisher and the school had agreed to a contract that would pay him more than $4 million per year. FSU confirmed the two sides had reached a deal on a contract extension, but didn’t release details.
Fisher has long been rumored to be one of the top candidates for the open job at the University of Texas. Longhorns head coach Mack Brown retired after Monday night’s bowl loss to Oregon and UT is ready to break open the bank for a quality head coach.
But, Fisher has rebuilt the Florida State juggernaut and has the Seminoles on the cusp of winning another national championship. FSU plays Auburn in the final BCS game for the championship. In four years at FSU, Fisher is 45-10.
