Seton Hall and Bobby Gonzalez have settled their differences.
Judge Stanley R. Chesler on Monday dismissed the lawsuit Gonzalez filed against the university after it dismissed him March 17 for cause. The lawsuit claimed he had “satisfactorily performed his duties.”
Seton Hall maintained that Gonzalez was fired with cause six days after a profanity-laced tirade at Patrick Hobbs, the Dean of the Seton Hall Law School and his acting boss.
“The university is happy to have this matter behind it and wishes Coach Gonzalez well,” said Seton Hall spokeswoman Holly Wojcik.
Terms were not disclosed.Kevin Marino, Seton Hall’s attorney, and Gerald Krovatin, Gonzalez’s attorney, declined comment.
Gonzalez appeared at several recent Team USA practices in New York and said he hoped to find work in the NBA or on TV.
