TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Jimbo Fisher's eight-year contract extension will begin with a $5 million salary in 2015 and includes a significant buyout if he chooses to leave Florida State before the end of the 2022 season.
The school announced the contract Dec. 23, but released the financial details Wednesday as part of a public records request.
The 49-year-old Fisher will owe $5 million if he leaves Florida State before December 2016. The contract features a sliding scale, with Fisher owing $3 million if he leaves before December 2018 and then $1 million after January 1, 2019.
