    I think that through the years we all have seen how those contracts really don't mean a lot. While Kiffin signed the contract with one hand, he probably had his phone on silence taking messages from AD's of any power 5 conference school that might hire him.

    I assume the primary purpose is that FAU gets paid when Kiffin decides to walk. Good call on their part.

    Heck it probably isn't on silent. He has their fight songs as the ring tones.

    I believe it was done to convince recruits that he is staying at FAU.

    Guess it worked for his players, who proceeded to wax Akron.
