STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State has settled its lawsuit with former defensive coordinator Bob Shoop.

The school has announced the two sides have reached an “amicable resolution.” School officials say Shoop “recognizes obligations under his employment contract with Penn State” but settlement terms would remain confidential.

Shoop was Penn State’s defensive coordinator from 2014-15 before leaving for the same position at Tennessee. The school sued Shoop last summer and said he owed $891,000. Shoop filed a counterclaim saying he was forced out of his Penn State job and that he’d “experienced a hostile, negative work environment.”

The school release announcing the settlement says Shoop was “grateful” for the support he received at Penn State and that Penn State recognizes Shoop was “an integral part” of the staff.

Shoop is now Mississippi State’s defensive coordinator.
