In an update of an older story, it seems Georgia Tech athletic director Todd Stansbury is back in good standing with Oregon State after paying back nearly $1.5 million dollars to satisfy his obligation to them. At least, it seems they won’t be pursuing legal action against him, as they have dropped the lawsuit against Tech’s athletic director. As the article mentions, Stansbury had to restructure his contract with Tech by agreeing to a reduced salary in exchange for a loan.
