It is being reported that former Ole Miss assistant coach Joe Cullen and the school have settled a lawsuit outside of court. Cullen was dismissed from his job due to his arrest for public drunkeness. Cullen and the school were at dispute over the firing. The arrest turned out to be one of several P.R. nightmares that were being caused by players and coaches and their run-in's with the Oxford Police Department. Financial terms were not released, but it is believed the school will pay Cullen between $60,000 and $100,000. Mike Wall, Cullen's Oxford attorney says Cullen has moved to Illinois to continue his coaching profession.
