John Chavis close to big-money deal

Chavis, who won the Broyles Award last season as the nation's top assistant coach, is close to signing a contract 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.

I see this as running up the price to keep a quality DC.

I like John, but LSU is loaded with talent on defense. Just thought some of you older fans could shed light on this deal.

Is Chavis worth that much?

As good as he is, I don't think he's worth that much. And I don't think he's a better defensive coordinator than Kirby Smart.

IMO for 1.1 million you better be the complete package, both a coach and a recruiter. Chavis quite frankly doesn't recruit, luckily for him Louisiana has enough talent that he can get away with this.

He's done a fantastic job there. Hard to argue against it.

I could have sworn I saw LSU lose the NC game to an Alabama team that had McCarron throw dink-and-dunk passes all night.

I think Chavis is a better College. DC than Monte Kiffin.
He is one of the elite DC's. He deserves to be one of the higher paid DC's.

I would blame that loss more on LSU's offensive impotence than Chavis' D.
