LSU’s new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will receive a three-year contract that will initially pay him $600,000 for the 2013 season, the school announced on Tuesday.
Cameron, who was officially named LSU’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach last week, will earn $1.3 million in his second year and $1.5 million for the final year of the contract, which runs through the 2015 season.
Cameron’s contract is subject to approval by the LSU Board of Supervisors.
Im guessing he is still getting paid this year so they kept it low. Works for us and locking him in at 1.3 and 1.5 the next two seems fair for what we are getting. That's a lot for a coordinator, but it could be the missing piece.
Love that we get him for cheap this year due to still getting paid by Baltimore! I think he'll prove to be worth every bit of the 1.5 and the good thing is with that kind of salary it will be harder for teams to pull him away back to the NFL
I have no issue with him making that much if he fixes the O, but he better produce for that price
That's a nice jump from year 1 to year 2. Him and Chavis are clearing that $1 million mark on each side of the ball..

If he can get the offense to play at the same level that the defense has played at it'll be money well spent!
Shea, what does Chavis make? Don't you think his will have to match Cameron's?

Chavis signed a three-year deal before last season averaging $1.1 million per year. He will make $500K more than Cameron this year and they will make the same salary in 2014. After that Chavis is up for a new deal that I agree will likely at least match Cameron's 2015 numbers.

That's a $3.4mm commitment. Cue the complaints the first time the Tigers show even the slightest signs of struggle on offense.
Heck, you probably won't have to wait that long! I suspect some will complain when they read the salaries in the next coupla days!!!

cue the people bitching about other people bitching while everyone seems pretty excited about this news
not only does Cameron have very strong incentive to stay, but this salary is a sign that Miles is bringing him to LSU to get big results, which in turn should mean he'll have unprecedented autonomy.
Especially when you consider Les' familiarity with him, Cameron's NFL experience and personality/history.

That's what I gathered from it also. You don't pay someone that much for the head coach to stick their nose in their business. Give those reigns to Cameron and let him unleash fury
