BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California has reached a $5.55 million settlement to pay off the final three seasons of former football coach Jeff Tedford's contract.
The school released details of the settlement on Monday.
Tedford's contract called for him to be paid $6.9 million through 2015. Instead he will get $1.8 million in 2013, $1.8 million in 2014 and $1.95 million in 2015. Tedford and the university will split any amount he earns in excess of $1.5 million as a college head coach or NFL head coach or assistant before Dec. 31, 2015.
Tedford is the winningest coach in Cal history with a 82-57 record in 11 seasons. He was fired in November after going 3-9 last season.
