NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Seton Hall University has settled a wrongful termination lawsuit brought by former men’s basketball coach Bobby Gonzalez.

School spokeswoman Holly Wojcik (WOH’-chek) confirms a settlement has been reached but says the terms are confidential.

Gonzalez is known for his brash, aggressive style and was fired March 17 after Seton Hall lost in the opening round of the NIT. School officials referred to off-court problems when they announced his firing.

Gonzalez claimed in the suit that he had been fired without cause and was owed two years of salary.

An attorney for Gonzalez did not immediately return a message.
