Montana agrees to $78K payout for football coach



HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The University of Montana will pay former football coach Robin Pflugrad an additional $78,000 to resolve all issues relating to his dismissal.

The university and Pflugrad announced the payout Monday.

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 this fall. 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.
