Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher has signed a two-year contract extension, which will carry him through the 2024 season.

Fisher is in his seventh season at Florida State and has a 77-17 record, including leading the school to the 2013 BCS national championship. The 10th-ranked Seminoles are in a New Year's Six bowl for the fifth straight season and will take on No. 6 Michigan in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30.
