Kansas State University has settled its ongoing lawsuit with former football coach Ron Prince. Prince was let go late in the 2008 season after going 17-20 in three seasons. The suit regarded a "secret" $3.2 million deferred severance Prince negotiated with former K-State athletic director Bob Krause. The settlement accelerates payment of the severance to an extent that its value is arguably greater for Prince than the original deal. Prince also received $1.2 million as part of his original contract.
