Jimbo Gets Jumbo Raise, Being An Assistant Coach Doesn’t Suck Either

Jimbo Fisher
Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher has received a $4.75 million raise following his first season as the Seminoles football coach.

Fisher inked a new 5-year, $13.75 million contract that runs until Jan. 4, 2016. He receives an annual pay raise of $950,000, money to be paid to him for his radio and television shows and public appearances.
Fisher’s $225,000 annual base salary and several lucrative bonus provisions totaling more than $800,000 remain unchanged.

it is kind of funny...

Some of those 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.

The deal requires Fisher, who is in his first head coaching position, to reimburse the school $2 million if he leaves before the end of the contract.

In Fisher’s first season taking over for longtime coach Bobby Bowden, the Seminoles finished 10-4, defeating both instate rivals Miami and Florida and then South Carolina in the Chick Fil-A Bowl.

The 45-year-old Fisher followed that up by landing one of the nation’s top signing classes of prep talent earlier this month.

The school also released a copy of offensive line coach Rick Trickett’s new three-year contract that will pay him $400,000 annually.
