Oklahoma paid former basketball coach Jeff Capel $1.75 million in addition to his monthly salary after firing him following back-to-back losing seasons.
According to documents released Wednesday to The Associated Press in response to an open records request, Oklahoma continued to pay Capel his monthly salary through the end of June, under the terms of his contract. In addition to that, the documents show that Capel also received $500,000 extra at the end of May and a $1.25 million lump sum at the end of June.
The school has refused to release details of Capel's buyout but released a list of all payments to Capel since he was hired in 2006.
Capel was fired in March after the Sooners had their first consecutive losing seasons since 1966-67.
