Both Schiano and former Tennessee athletic director John Currie had already signed the document, Tennessee's contract policy required Miller's signature for the agreement to become binding, according to Toppmeyer. As Brown said, Tennesse hopes that Davenport's missing signature means that Schiano is not due any compensation.
Protests forced Currie to back out of the deal, but since he signed a memorandum of understanding with the coach, there was a chance (and still is) that Schiano could seek legal action.
Perhaps the Vols dodged a bullet there, but we'll never know for sure, as Schiano will remain at Ohio State for the time being. The school would have owed Schiano 75 percent of the remainder of the contract if it made a decision to fire him without cause prior to the end of the deal. And according to the document, Schiano agreed to a six-year, $27 million deal. When news leaked of his impending hire, Tennessee faced an overwhelming amount of backlash from fans, boosters and even local politicians and businesses.
