A month or so after it became public that former Miami coach Randy Shannon was suing his former employer, the two sides have come to an agreement.

In a statement released Tuesday, UM said it had settled its contract dispute with Shannon, but did not disclose any details of the agreement.

Shannon was seeking damages from the school in the form of unpaid compensation dictated by his employment contract. Additionally, and according to the lawsuit, UM was attempting to recover “amounts overpaid” to Shannon in his Guarantee Agreement.

Shannon coached the Hurricanes from 2007-10. He was fired following a 28-22 overall record and 16-16 record in the ACC.

    Shannon must have given back the money he stole from the U. Way to go Randy, at least now you realize that money you made here was for a good coach and not for someone to set the program back and burn bridges with most Florida High Schools.

    Shannon is a good coach and great recruiter.

    Say WHAT???

    Randy was a sideline embarrassment. Even from a television you could see that he had zero communication skills. All the beat writers confirmed this after he was fired. Guy couldn’t keep a coaching staff happy to save his life. He set fire to the football program with his QB incompetence. Meanwhile, Jacory is playing Xbox.

    Shannon’s recruiting classes steadily spiraled DOWNWARD!

    On what planet was he a good coach and great recruiter? Cane fan ability to ignore reality is legendary.

    All those great recruiting classes he had have pretty much cemented a sub .500 campaign for 2012. Find the word “Hurricanes” in any preseason chatter anywhere. Doesn’t exist. I know,…I know, a storm is brewing…….
