Patrick Dennis-USA TODAY Sports
A Louisiana Legislative Auditor found that LSU overpaid head coach Brian Kelly by more than $1 million in 2022 due to double payments directly to him as well as Kelly's LLC. Per The Advocate:

Kelly was overpaid $1,001,368 in supplemental payments during the 2022 fiscal year. LSU made double payments in May and June 2022. In May 2022 to Kelly's LLC, then continued to make supplemental payments to the coach directly, resulting in monthly double payments until LSU management detected it in November.

According to a release from the Louisiana legislative audit, LSU and Kelly "have enacted an adjusted payment schedule so the amount of overpayment will be recouped by the conclusion of fiscal year 2023."

Man you know you're rich when you don't even notice an extra million in your account.

I would've caught $17 if it was extra in my account

Must be nice throwing 10s of millions around with an extra million mistake.

Year 1 and he wins the SEC West. LSU probably made 5x that much in additional revenue from the success of this year. Stellar job overall.
