Central Michigan to Pay $450K to Settle Claims

MOST COMMENTED

According to an AP report, Central Michigan University has agreed to pay just over $450,000 to settle an "inappropriate sexual activity" suit brought by two varsity soccer players against former coach Tony DiTucci, who resigned back in October 2008. The deal, which was signed on Monday, earmarks $150,000 for each player with the final third going to their lawyer Jennifer Salvatore.

A senior and freshman on the Chippewas 2008 team, both players admitted to engaging in a sexual relationship with DiTucci, but only because of his "skilled manipulation and seduction" and because he "made them believe they were special and he was in love with them," said Salvatore.

Through his own lawyer, DiTucci declared his innocence and said the women "had made suggestive romantic advances ... on more than one occasion," which he reported it to a supervisor. After initially being placed on leave last September, the 35-year-old Rochester native later quit "because my innocence would forever be in doubt, no matter what the outcome of an investigation."
