TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State's new football coach
Jimbo Fisher has agreed to a five-year contract worth $1.8 million
annually, not including incentives.

Fisher, currently FSU's offensive coordinator, will take over
from coach Bobby Bowden on Jan. 5. Bowden will coach his final game
Jan. 1 in the Gator Bowl against West Virginia, where he'd been
before coming to Tallahassee 33 years ago.

The 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.

Finishing in the top five of The Associated Press poll would
give him $100,000 while making the top 10 would be worth $50,000.
