In response to a public records request from the Associated Press, FSU has released contract copies of the new FSU assistant coaches hired. In what can be hardly a surprise, Jimbo Fisher will receive $210,000 from the Seminole Boosters in addition to his $215,000 base salary from the university.
The extra money is compensation for additional duties not required to draw his base pay, including fundraising, speeches, radio and television shows and public relations contacts with alumni, supporters and civic and community groups, official said.
Offensive line coach Rick Trickett is getting $200,000 from the university and $100,000 from the booster fund for similar added duties.
No other new assistant coaches are receiving any money from the boosters. Florida State's boosters also are paying $537,000 to Jeff Bowden as part of his resignation deal.
