Florida State coach Mike Norvell and the Seminoles have verbally agreed to a one-year contract extension, the school announced Tuesday.
Terms were not disclosed. Once finalized, his deal will run through the 2026 season.
“I am incredibly thankful to the board of trustees, President (Richard) McCullough, David Coburn and Michael Alford for their support of our climb,” Norvell said in a statement. “Because of the investments they have continued to make in the personnel and infrastructure supporting our program, our current roster will continue to develop alongside the future Seminoles who will be joining us in the coming days. This is an exciting time to be part of the Florida State program, and there are great days ahead.”
Norvell is 8-13 in two seasons at FSU after coming over from Memphis. His Seminoles started 0-4 this season but rebounded to finish 5-7 with a pivotal win over Miami and close losses to Clemson and Florida.
He does, however, have strong recruiting momentum. FSU has a non-binding oral commitment from Travis Hunter, the top recruit in the 2022 class. He’s expected to sign with the ‘Noles on Wednesday. FSU is in contention to secure a top-10 class in the early signing period — a rarity among programs coming off losing seasons.
Norvell’s original six-year deal began with $4 million in total compensation for his first year with $250,000 raises for the first three years. He took a pay cut last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
