Data: State University System of Florida; Chart: Baidi Wang/Axios

FSU extended head football coach Mike Norvell's lucrative contract for a year a week after UF poached former Louisiana-Lafayette coach Billy Napier with a starting salary of $7.1 million, making him the highest-paid public employee in Florida.

  • Napier technically negotiated the contract with Florida's University Athletic Association Inc., a quasi-public nonprofit organization, the Miami Herald reports.
