SDSU settles with Chuck Long

San Diego State and Chuck Long have reached a settlement, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Long was fired in November 2008, but the school still had him on the payroll. Now, the association with the school will end Dec. 31, 2009. According to the story, Long will be paid $715,000, minus any salary, compensation or income from any other employment or contracted services during 2010.

The settlement is almost the same as Long’s current contract, which was to pay him $715,000 through Dec. 31, 2010. The only difference is that compensation from other employment would be deducted from his SDSU salary.
