Broadus Behavior Begats Binghamton Buyout

((HT: WBNG-TV Binghamton, NY))

Binghamton University has bought out the contract of former men's basketball coach Kevin Broadus, who gave the program its quick success and its equally quick downfall.

In exchange for his resignation and the withdrawing of all claims, ideas of lawsuits, and anything else Broadus may have ever had in mind, he gets a $1.2 million
settlement. Binghamton University will pay, roughly, three-quarters of the amount (($819,115)) and the State University of New York will pay the other quarter (( $380,884)).

Remember, back in July, Broadus started pointing at racial discrimination as his reason for all the bad things going his way on campus...

He and his attorneys also were on the track of getting Broadus his job back after an NCAA investigation found no wrongdoing.

The program came into the national spotlight after star guard Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben was busted on charges of selling crack cocaine. Five other players were later dismissed and Broadus was suspended with pay for making illegal contact with recruits.

Now, a lot of people wonder whether or not Binghamton should even have a D1 hoops program anymore after what happened...
