HBCU Savannah State University Settles Lawsuit With ex-Head Coach-Suit Claims Him Being White Was An Issue

Somehow, Savannah State University's ex-head football coach, Robby Wells, has received a $240,000 settlement to dismiss a federal discrimination lawsuit he filed last year. The lawsuit claimed the historically HBCU fired him because he was white. His lawyers were also paid an additional $110,000 by the historically HBCU. His record during his time as head coach was, 5-7 in his first year and 2-8 in his second year. Wells was given a contract extension prior to his lawsuit. My question here is, what kind of lawyers do SSU have? I mean they don't have any good lawyers that can win this case based on just his first two seasons as head coach? Race is not the issue here. He was a bad fit and was removed in the 'best interest of the university'. Why did they settle? Read more (here).
