The finalized contract released by the university Wednesday shows Fisher will receive an additional $525,000 annually for his radio and television obligations and another $425,000 boost for speaking engagements and public relations appearances. He is now paid $925,000 annually for radio, television and media obligations and $1.1 million for the public relations and speaking engagements.
