Norvell and FSU have agreed on an eight-year extension, the school confirmed. It will pay Norvell more than $10 million a year, according to Yahoo Sports.

“We came to Tallahassee four years ago, and it was a life-changing experience,” Norvell said in a press release. “Knowing the great history, tradition and expectation has guided our staff on a daily basis. It has been an incredible journey these last four years, and I have fallen in love with this program, the university and the people who I get to represent. I am so excited to continue our climb to push Florida State back to the top of college football.

“We are committed to being our best on and off the field while helping develop our players to be their best in every area of their lives. I am incredibly thankful for the amazing commitment into our student-athletes and staff from President McCullough, AD Alford and the Board of Trustees. #Keep Climbing and Go Noles!”
