Former LSU offensive line coach James Cregg is suing the university for breach of contract after he was fired months ago, according to The Advocate.

Cregg was fired "for cause" back in June after he admitted to violating NCAA rules during a "covid recruiting dead period."
quote:

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Baton Rouge state court, says LSU athletic director Scott Woodward provided Cregg a termination letter on June 17 citing the violation of NCAA rules referenced by Orgeron.

Cregg claims in his lawsuit, which seeks damages, that the NCAA "has never issued a ruling or decision that Coach Cregg has committed a Level I or Level II violation, or repeated Level III and/or Level IV violations, of the NCAA bylaws such that ... the Employment Agreement could provide a for cause justification for LSU to terminate coach Cregg's employment,"

According to Cregg's most recent contract with LSU, if he is terminated by LSU without cause, the university must pay him the total remaining base salary and supplemental compensation in monthly installments equal to the amount of time remaining in the term. Read more.
LSU replaced Cregg with new offensive line coach Brad Davis who came over from Arkansas.

If he admitted recruiting violations then he was fired for cause. He has no case.

Ed O has made some bad hires in the time he has been HC at LSU. Add this guy to the list of bad hires. As of Now Brady has been the only star. New guys on Staff this year to be determined.

So he’s made a bunch of shitty hires but one good one? Wouldn’t really inspire confidence, but maybe he’ll get lucky again.

I guess a bunch of sorry hires won a Natty.

I tend to believe Cregg here. No chance in hell this guy was cheating at recruiting with how incredibly shitty he was at it

Except that he admitted to cheating.

Still don’t really understand what he did? Recruiting violation is not very specific.

Geez, why not just pay the idiot? Talk about penny wise, pound foolish. WTF kind of amateur crap is LSU trying to pull here? It won't end well.

He will get paid to shut up That’s the point of the suit and it’s an effective tactic if you possess info others don’t want out on the public eye

It’s totally normal for someone to sue after getting fired….part of the cost of doing business.

Bad recruiting He should not even ask for his money after the bad season riddled with sacks an injury to the QB a terrible blocking scheme and also he did not rotate fresh guys also bad recruiting high schools its like he was lazy to go after the big fish and only settling for one recruit just one

If you’re not a tiger you’re tiger bait. frick him.

He just never looked like a good hire in the 1st place. Why bring an NFL guy who is also a west coast guy. He was completely out of his depth from the start.

Ed O is a special guy.

He knows he has no case but he’s involving the NCAA to shed light on LSU’s dirty laundry. This way LSU can either pay him or face Level I/Level II violations for the football program. Plus he probably knows where all the skeletons are buried. This is modern day Blackmail.

I doubt seriously any investigation hinges on James Cregg. He was a sorry OL coach who admitted to violations and was fired. Probably can’t get a job anywhere near the LSU level and is trying to get some money.
2 months
Yeah having dirty laundry would require actually signing one of his recruits. There was cause, he cheated and still sucked at recruiting anyways.

Oh, boy! You have to ask why emotions have run this high. Quick hire and quick fire is a part of college football. What is the reason he is taking it this far? One down side to this is that he may never get hired anywhere else. I hope he does not have a Louisiana attorney. If he does, it is a sign of how fragile our support system for our flagship university can be, which can pose a challenges to recruiting. Recruits pay attention to everything.

Sounds like he has a case.
