Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has signed a new five-year contract through the 2018 season, the school announced Tuesday.
A source told ESPN's Joe Schad the deal is worth $21 million.
"We are 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. "Coach Fisher enjoys the full support of the leadership of the university and we look forward to the continued success of our football program on the field and in the classroom."
The two sides agreed to a new deal just before the ACC championship game. Perhaps now that Fisher has signed the contract, speculation linking him to the Texas job will come to an end.
