Newly hired LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele has a two-year contract worth $1 million per year. His contract will be under consideration by the LSU Board of Supervisors.

Here are the details, according to Jim Kleinpeter with

Steele, the former Alabama assistant hired earlier this month, will make $500,000 in base salary with a $500,000 media stipend. Former LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis, who left LSU for Texas A&M, made $1.312 million in his final season with the Tigers.

The contract includes a "Les Miles" clause, which states that if head coach Les Miles leaves, the contract ends six months later. Steele's buyout is set at $450,000. If Steele leaves for another SEC school he would owe 50 percent of the remaining value of the contract and 20 percent if he leaves for a non-conference school.
According to Kleinpeter, Steele can earn a maximum of $125,000 in incentive bonuses annually.
