About a year and a half after being fired as the head coach of Miami, Randy Shannon is taking his former employer to court over a payout dispute.
Thanks to a case document from courthousenews.com, Shannon is seeking damages from the school in the form of unpaid compensation dictated by his employment contract. Additionally, and according to the document, UM is attempting to recover “amounts overpaid” to Shannon in his Guarantee Agreement.
You can read the entire document HERE, but the long and short of it is Shannon claims Miami improperly prorate payments due to him. He is pursuing litigation on three counts: breach of contract — guarantee, declaratory relief and breach of contract — additional compensation for bowl appearance (Sun Bowl).
The document does not say how much Shannon believes he is entitled to — although it states Shannon was fired without cause — but it is a case involving damages more than $15,000.
