This predictably upset fans and one analyst in particular who played there. Former Seminole quarterback Danny Kanell sounded off on the comments from Fisher and seemed pretty upset about the whole thing. Naturally, he took to Twitter to express his frustrations.
And his comment that Fisher’s claims aren’t true have been backed up. Here’s just a short list of things the administration did to help out Fisher when he was there.
That sounds like an administration that certainly pulled its weight in the football department. Kanell does make a good point that if it’s just about the money then that’s fine. Just don’t claim it was a number of other factors that don’t make sense. It’s pretty hard to turn down $75 million over 10 years and there is absolutely no shame in taking that deal over the deal he had with FSU that worth just under $6.5 million a year.
