UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Former Illinois football player Simon Cvijanovic and the University of Illinois have reach a settlement.

They have agreed to a one-time payment of $250,000. In May of 2015, the former offensive lineman accused former head coach Tim Beckman of mistreatment, and said Beckman forced him to play while he was hurt.

An independent investigation proved those claims to be true.
