Kansas football and former head coach David Beaty have reached a settlement, and nobody really won.

Kansas football has been locked in a battle with former head coach David Beaty for over a year; however, an end to the dispute was announced yesterday.

Beaty was fired by athletic director Jeff Long, and Kansas agreed to pay him his $3 million dollar buyout.
