TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State assistant Jimbo Fisher said Sunday night he will be staying at the school, ending rumors that he might become the next head coach at West Virginia.
``I know media reports are circulating regarding the possibility of West Virginia's head coaching position. I am a native of West Virginia and I love the state, but I want to make clear that I am staying at Florida State,'' Fisher said in a statement released through the university.
``I am committed to this university, this program and these players. I am excited about where I am and where Seminole football is headed.''
The 42-year-old offensive coordinator said he would follow Bobby Bowden as head coach at Florida State in a press conference on Dec. 10, when Bowden's contract was extended for one year.
At the same time, Fisher's base pay was increased to $625,000, and he received a $2.5 million guarantee to remain as offensive coordinator for three seasons if Bowden remains that long.
Bowden's contract allows him to decide on his coaching future on a yearly basis.
