LSU does something expected since… what, the second half of the first game of the season?
The one-time payment is reportedly around $5.2 million, which is certainly nice work if you can get it.
As the linked article indicates, Pelini isn’t leaving by himself.
More staff changes are expected to come, including the departure of safeties coach Bill Busch and the retirement of defensive line coach Bill Johnson. Cornerbacks coach Corey Raymond, an assistant on staff since 2012, is the only defensive coach remaining on staff.
LSU is also expected to part ways with passing game coordinator Scott Linehan after one season, multiple sources told The Advocate. The 57-year-old Linehan is due the full remainder of his two-year, $800,000 per year contract, a buyout that is approximately $1 million.
All that, and an athletic department looking at taking an $80 million hit this year. What a country, eh?
The punchline is that Coach O will be picking the replacements. I mean, what could go wrong?
