Seminoles coach Fisher signs extension


Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, pictured, will remain with the program through 2018 after signing a three-year contract extension. Texas reportedly had interest in Fisher replacing coach Mack Brown before Florida State made the announcement on Tuesday. The top-ranked Seminoles face Auburn in the BCS championship game on Monday night. “We’re extremely pleased with the direction of our program and believe that this new contract will assure that coach Fisher is in place to lead the Seminoles for a long time to come,” athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a statement. Fisher’s previous deal ran through 2015 and paid $2.75 million annually. Details of the extension agreement were not immediately available. – Associated Press
