The College of Charleston and former head coach Doug Wojcik reached a settlement on Tuesday afternoon, according to Wojcik’s attorney, Ronald L. Richter Jr.

Wojcik was fired for just cause on Aug. 5 after two seasons as former players had accused him of verbal abuse. Those allegations went public in July with a 50-page report documenting their claims.

“After a full review of the facts relating to the allegation of physical abuse made by a player, the College made no finding of physical abuse, but concluded physical contact occurred that was offensive to the player,” a statement from Richter read, according to Andrew Miller of the Post and Courier.

A second investigation was conducted later on July 23 after Trevonte Dixon, who played for Wojcik during the 2012-2013 season, said he was involved in a physical confrontation with Wojcik during a game against Elon on Dec. 1, 2012. College of Charleston determined there was no evidence of physical abuse, according to the Post and Courier.

The terms of the settlement were not released.

College of Charleston coaching search came to an end last Tuesday when the school hired Clemson assistant Earl Grant. The first-year head coach had been at Clemson for four seasons, previously serving on Gregg Marshall’s staff at both Winthrop and Wichita State.
