TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Big Bend businesses say they are ready to reap the rewards from the new head coach as well.

You may remember Garnet and Gold put up a sign when Odell Haggins when he became interim and now, they have a sign welcoming Coach Mike Norvell.

Places like Garnet & Gold say they need the Seminoles to do well.

When they don't, people aren't as likely to buy FSU swag. That's why shop owner Guy Moore says he's ready for Norvell to kick the team into gear so he can make money he hasn't seen in years.

Now with a new coach, Moore says he has high hopes.

"This has been a really tough year. The last three years for my company have been really, really hard," said Moore. "This hopefully will bring us back into football season. A successful football season. Of course, my livelihood depends on a successful football season so I'm very excited."

This is one of their new designs: 'Nole-vell.' It will be in stores Tuesday.
