Former football coach sued school over payments

Headline Goes Here

Randy Shannon becomes the first former University of Miami football player to coach the Hurricanes.

The University of Miami says a lawsuit former football coach Randy Shannon filed in late April over outstanding payments has been settled.

The lawsuit was filed in Miami on April 27. Financial terms of the settlement were not released.

Shannon was fired Nov. 27, 2010 after going 28-22 in four seasons with the Hurricanes. Earlier that year, he and the school agreed on an extension that would have kept him under contract through January 2014.

In the lawsuit, Shannon said the school was refusing to pay some of the money guaranteed by that extension, plus a bonus over Miami's selection to the 2010 Sun Bowl.
