Former Ball State University basketball coach Ronny Thompson will receive $200,000 from the Muncie school to settle racial harassment and retaliation complaints.
Thompson resigned in July 2007 amid allegations that he and his staff had broken NCAA rules by attending voluntary off-season team workouts, and then lied about it. The university later said that its investigation into the charges was tainted by unprofessional conduct by the staff member who conducted it.
Ball State has since said that Thompson did not lie during the investigation, and an independent review by former Indiana Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby found no evidence of discrimination by Ball State.
