Montana Reaches Settlements With Fired Coach Robin Pflugrad, AD Jim O'Day

While the University of Montana remains mum on why Grizzlies football head coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O'Day were fired in late March, the school has reached a settlement with its former employees in compensation over lost income, reports the Missoulian.

Pflugrad will receive his base salary of $157,000 plus health benefits through Dec. 31, 2012. He will also recoup lost monies from other ventures by receiving an additional $44,500. O'Day comes away with $155,281 for his contract that ends on June 30, 2012. These deals are not unexpected since the topic has been around since early April.

Montana has chosen not to discuss the reason(s) for not renewing the contracts of Pflugrad and O'Day, but it is widely suspected to deal with the current sexual assault scandal that has involved past and present players on the football team. The NCAA is currently investigating the Montana football program.
