Former USC assistant coach Todd McNair has settled his defamation lawsuit with the NCAA, according to ESPN.
The settlement was reached through mediation. Financial terms were not announced.
“After ten years of litigation, both sides have come together to resolve this matter to the mutual satisfaction of all parties involved,” attorneys for McNair and the NCAA said in a joint statement on Monday.
I’m just glad this nightmare is over. A segment of USC media/fans turned this into their cause for the past 10 years and made McNair a martyr and it is true he suffered from the over-the-top NCAA sanctions.
It is also true that segment of media/fans never wanted to know what possible violations occurred from McNair’s involvement with Reggie Bush. They just wanted a vessel to strike back at the NCAA.
Now, thankfully, we don’t have to hear about it anymore.
