Audit: LSU discovered $1M overpayment to Kelly in 2022

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU accidentally overpaid Tigers football coach Brian Kelly by $1 million during the first year of a 10-year, $100 million contract, but discovered the error and has moved to correct it, the Louisiana Legislative Auditor's office said Wednesday.

Kelly was overpaid $1,001,368 in supplemental payments in 2022 because duplicate payments made both to Kelly's LLC and to the coach directly.

The double payments began in May and continued until LSU officials detected the errors in November.
