Doug Wojcik and the College of Charleston have reached a settlement that will finally end a soap opera that has dragged on for more than two months.
Wojcik was accused of verbally and physically abusing his players during his two seasons at the helm at Charleston leading to his dismissal in early August. He was fired for cause, but it was determined that there were no signs of physical abuse.
After a long, drawn-out and fairly embarrassing coaching search, the Cougars not only have a head coach but they now have finally cut all ties with their former coach. On Tuesday, the Charleston Post and Courier reported that Wojcik and the university had reached a settlement that would pay him $400,000, or the equivalent on one year’s salary. He had three years and $1.2 million left on his contract.
