LSU is finalizing a new contract for defensive coordinator John Chavis that would pay him an average of $1.1 million over the next three years and make him one of the highest paid assistant coaches in college football. Les Miles told Gannett Louisiana Newspapers...

"He's turned down opportunities. He could easily have been at any number of places in the SEC as defensive coordinator for a huge raise," "So I think this is really just market value."

"I think what we've done on defense has established LSU as a very dominant mainstay of defensive football for three years," Miles said. "I think this makes the statement that we will make a commitment to defensive play and excellent coaching, and I think that's exactly what we should do."

Miles added that Chavis had been "tremendously loyal to LSU and our football program."
Awww yea.

If you paid a REAL offensive coordinator money, LSU would be a "mainstay" there to instead of a laughing stock.
