Vols/Kiffin Agree on 6-Year Deal

The Tennessee Vols are 3-and-3 overall and 1-and-2 in the S.E.C...

That's good enough for UT Brass to agree on a contract that will pay Head Coach Lane Kiffin an average of $2.4 Million Dollars for the next 6-seasons.

Kiffin will earn $2-Million this year...which includes base salary and pay for postgame shows and endorsements.

His compensation gradually increases each season, up to a total of $2.75 Million for 20-14, the final year of the contract.

If he gets fired without cause, Kiffin gets a buyout of between $5 and $7 Million bucks.

Should he leave for another job, Kiffin will owe the University between $200 Grand and $1-Million, depending on how much time is left on the deal.
