LSU overpaid Brian Kelly a substantial amount in 2022
LSU made a rather awkward mistake in paying coach Brian Kelly this season.
A report from the Louisiana Legislative Auditor found that LSU unwittingly paid Kelly more than $1 million more than he owed, based on Holly Duchmann of Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. The report shows that the school began paying Kelly directly for hiring him in November 2021, then reached an agreement to send the payments to the coach’s LLC in May 2022, a The deal is not unusual for college football coaches.
However, LSU inadvertently continued to pay Kelly directly through November even after initiating payments to his LLC, resulting in an overpayment of more than $1 million. Since then, the two sides have worked together to negotiate a salary adjustment so that the university will recoup the overpayment by the end of the 2023 academic year.
Kelly will get a lot of money from LSU in the contract he’s agreed to in 2021. Basically, this just means he got some work done ahead of time, but it’s still pretty awkward from the university’s point of view. .
