FSU announces one-year extension for Norvell

Florida State officials have “verbally agreed” to a one-year extension with Mike Norvell, the school announced on Tuesday. His original deal was set to expire on Dec. 31, 2025. Norvell has just wrapped up his second season at FSU and, under the new deal, would have his contract extended through the 2026 season.

It’s not clear if any of the terms of the extension update the contract, if salary has been adjusted or if buyouts or bonuses have changed.

“I am incredibly thankful to the board of trustees, President 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.”

The announcement comes a day before the early signing period begins on Wednesday. FSU has the No. 10 class in the nation and No. 2 in the ACC, according to 247Sports.

Norvell’s original deal was signed in December 2019 upon his arrival from Memphis. He is set to make $4.25 million plus incentives in year 3 (2022 season) under a contract that gradually escalates to $5 million in 2025 (plus incentives).
