The new deal will bump him from his previous $2.75 million deal, and will make him one of the ten highest paid coaches in the country. Fisher was already the highest-paid coach in the ACC, but the new deal will also make his salary higher than Louisville's Charlie Strong, who joins the conference next season.
After three years as Bobby Bowden's offensive coordinator, Fisher took over the head coaching position in Tallahassee in 2010. The Seminoles have gone 43-10 during his four years with the program, with three appearances in the ACC Championship Game.
With a win over Duke in this year's ACC Championship Game, Fisher's top-ranked Seminoles would certainly make the national title game. Florida State has not won a national championship since 1999.
