The University of Alabama filed a suit against former assistant coach Mike Groh on Thursday seeking payment of his contract buyout. Per ESPN,
quote:

The suit filed Thursday in Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court says Groh owes the university $57,000, equal to 20 percent of his $285,000 salary.

Groh was hired by the Chicago Bears as receivers coach in February 2013 after two seasons as the Crimson Tide's receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.

The suit says Tide coach Nick Saban "elected not to waive the liquidated damages" allowed under Groh's contract. It says the university has made written requests that the money be paid.
ESPN states that Groh's contract with Alabama ran through Feb. 28, 2014. The Bears declined to comment on Thursday.

Isnt this guy the son of Al Groh? Former Wake Forrest coach? Did Saban hire him as a favor to dad? If so, then maybe Nicky has his arse chapped about it now.
