COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Quin Snyder's resignation as Missouri
basketball coach is official.
Two days after he stunned players, fans and school officials by
stepping down, university lawyers and the Board of Curators say
they've reached a financial settlement with Snyder.
Athletics Director Mike Alden says terms of the deal will be
announced later this week. In a written statement, he says the move
is ``in the best interests of all parties.''
The deal was reached only hours before today's home game against
Kansas State that will include a halftime celebration honoring 100
years of Missouri basketball and the program's all-time greatest
Alden also denies reports that on Thursday he sent broadcaster
Gary Link to tell Snyder he would be fired at season's end.
