UK has announced settlement of the breach of contract case filed by former UK coach Billy Gillispie when he was fired on March 27, 2009, by UK Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart for not being a “good fit” at the school.  The litigation which originally sought $6 million from the University of Kentucky has ended with the university paying  Gillispie $2.98 million plus $265,000 for Gillispie’s attorneys’ fees and mediation costs.  Gillispie’s attorney said the settlement was “several times” more than UK’s initial offers to the ex-coach .  Read the LHL story here.
