BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis and LSU have filed lawsuits against each other as the sides continue to squabble over whether the former LSU assistant owes a $400,000 buyout.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1vHimJ9 ) LSU filed its lawsuit Friday in the 19th Judicial Court in East Baton Rouge Parish shortly after Chavis filed suit in the 272nd District Court in Brazos County, Texas.
LSU released a statement late Friday, saying that it will "pursue immediate dismissal of Chavis' suit."
Chavis contends he does not owe the buyout, according to his suit.
LSU, in its suit, says Chavis owes the buyout because he terminated his contract before the start of the 11th month of the deal.
