I would hope that public false or disparaging statements about his employer would trigger "for cause" separation provisions which would eliminate or drastically reduce Notre Dame's financial liability in the event the University decided to terminate Kelly before the expiration of his contract.

(To be clear, I would expect this in any coach's contract, not just Kelly's.)
