Of course, the Baltimore contract may have a clause that requires them to pay him a certain amount or, if he finds a new position, to augment that pay up to the same amount.
That type of provision is not terribly unusual, and could allow LSU / CC to back load his compensation higher than it would otherwise be.

This makes a good bit of sense. Of course, if this kind of clause in his Baltimore contract were loosely enough worded so that CC could maximize his payout from the Ravens by deferring 2013 salary from his new employer, the Ravens need a better lawyer.

From what I understand, there is a decent chance the Ravens challenge this contract.

The LSU contract is likely structured that way so that the Ravens have to keep paying him. They might challenge the fact that he didn't mitigate the damages so he could keep the Ravens paying him.

Obviously, the Ravens would want to challenge that and make LSU pay him the market rate, etc.

Its a very common fight between coach reps and university reps apparently.

Suppose the contract with Baltimore says something like, "If you're fired, we will pay you your salary for 2013, but anything we owe you will be reduced by anything you make if you get another job in 2013." If the Ravens owed him $100 for 2013, and LSU agreed to pay him $100, then the Ravens would owe nothing. If his deal with LSU is no pay for 2013, and $200 for 2014, the Ravens might be expected to argue that he's obviously just deferring his 2013 pay of $100 from LSU in order to get an extra $100 from them, and he should be treated, for purposes of the Ravens contract, as having gotten $100 for 2013.

No doubt both his Ravens contract and his LSU contract are more sophisticated in their wording, but that's the basic idea.

Worth every penny if we have an offense ranked 30th or higher.
