The University of Tennessee and former athletic director John Currie reached a separation agreement worth $2.5 million, according to ESPN.


Currie, who was dismissed from his post Dec. 1 amid the school's controversial and lengthy search for a football coach, will receive a one-time payment of $2,220,454.60 by April 1. He has already been paid his salary from December through February. The athletics department will entirely fund the separation agreement, which has been approved by Tennessee's chancellor, system president and board of trustees.

"We wish John and his family well in their future endeavors," Tennessee chancellor Beverly Davenport said in a prepared statement. "We are grateful for his contributions to the University of Tennessee, which began more than two decades ago."
