Ex-football player settles with UGA over insurance

BY foxsports • February 24, 2010

A former University of Georgia cornerback has reached a $400,000 settlement with the school's athletic association over an insurance policy dispute.

Decory Bryant's settlement comes weeks after an Athens-Clarke County judge dismissed his lawsuit that claimed the athletic association failed to secure him a $500,000 insurance policy before he suffered a career-ending injury.

Athletic association attorney Ed Tolley said Wednesday it was a sign the ``athletic association had committed to helping'' Bryant all along.

Bryant's football career ended in 2003 with a neck injury. He claimed that a school official failed to complete the paperwork that would have paid him if an injury ended his career.
