A judge in Tallahassee has finalized the divorce of Florida State University football coach Jimbo Fisher and Candi Fisher.
Jimbo Fisher, 50, had filed for divorce July 31, and the case was made final Dec. 10. The petition mentioned that the couple had been separated since May with no chance of reconciliation.
The divorce settlement was reached relatively fast, considering that the Fishers have two young children after 22 years of marriage and his salary this year is $5 million.
And while the settlement is confidential, Leon County property records show Coach Fisher, whose Seminoles are playing in the Peach Bowl on New Year’s Eve, got to keep the marital home, a $1 million mansion in the city’s Gold Eagle Golf & Country Club.

Gossip Extra was told that Candi Fisher, 46, is renting a home nearby.
The case began rushing toward resolution in October, when Coach Fisher’s camp filed his intention to depose as a witness former University of Florida star wide receiver Taylor Jacobs, a Tallahassee native who moved back after five years in the NFL and a championship with the University of Florida Gators in 2000.
Jacobs was never deposed because the case started moving fast.
Candi Fisher didn’t respond to a request for comment left on her cellphone. Jimbo Fisher’s home phone isn’t accepting messages. And Jacobs didn’t return calls.
