Online court records show former Mizzou football offensive coordinator Derek Dooley and the UM Board of Curators have reached a settlement in Mr. Dooley’s lawsuit.
It’s unclear what that settlement involves, and Boone County Circuit Judge Brouck Jacobs is keeping the case open, pending the dismissal by Dooley. He’s the plaintiff.
Dooley was Mizzou’s offensive coordinator in 2018 and 2019, before he and then-head coach Barry Odom were let go. Dooley’s lawsuit says his contract required him to be paid his monthly salary of $77,000 for up to 12 months, for a total of $925,000.
The case was originally scheduled to go to a bench trial on Tuesday.
