Former Miami head coach Al Golden suing School for $3 million

Former head coach Al Golden is suing Miami for  $3 million that, he claims, is owed as “separation pay” following his firing almost exactly three years ago, in a report released Wednesday from TMZ Sports.  

As a private university, Miami isn’t subject to publicly release Golden’s contract nor the terms of his separation agreement. As a result, it’s not at all clear, based on TMZ’s report, where that seven-figure amount he’s asking for is coming from. Reports from back in 2015 indicate Golden made roughly $2.5 million per season.
