Oklahoma State settles lawsuit with Joe Wickline

Posted December 29th, 2015


At last, the lawsuit involving Oklahoma State and former Texas football assistant Joe Wickline has reached its completion.

Oklahoma State attorney Sean Breen told the American-Statesman on Tuesday that the lawsuit has been settled, confirming an earlier report by the Associated Press.

The settlement was for $250,000.


Oklahoma State sued Wickline in 2014 for about $600,000, believing he had violated the terms of his contract with the school by leaving for a job without play-calling duties. At Texas, it was widely believed that Shawn Watson, not Wickline, called plays during the 2014 season.

Wickline was fired this month after two seasons at Texas.
