Groh, who served as the Crimson Tide's wide receivers coach from 2011-12, left Alabama in February 2013 to be the wide receivers coach with the Chicago Bears.
The complaint states that Alabama "made written demands on Defendant for the payment of the liquidated damages" but the "Defendant has refused, and continues to refuse, to pay the liquidated damages."
Alabama is seeking 20 percent, or the buyout as it commonly referred to in coaching contracts, of the $285,000 contract, which comes to $57,000.
