HELENA, Mont. - The University of Montana will pay former football coach Robin Pflugrad an additional $78,000 to resolve all issues relating to the termination of his employment.
The university and Pflugrad issued a joint news release Monday announcing the settlement.
Pflugrad will receive $44,500 for lost summer camp income and radio and television appearances he would have made had he continued as Montana's coach. The settlement also calls for him to be paid $27,181 for unused vacation and $6,376 for unused sick leave. The lump sum payment of just over $78,000 is to be made on Jan. 2, 2013.
Pflugrad will continue to receive his salary and benefits through the end of the year, when his contract expires.
UM President Royce Engstrom relieved Pflugrad of his duties on March 29.
