The nearly three-month old saga that started with Jim Leavitt allegedly assaulting walk-on Joel Miller, which resulted in South Florida firing the program's only coach, has reached somewhat of a conclusion: Miller has decided not to pursue any legal action against his former coach.
“I want to end any further speculation regarding the incident with my former coach,” Miller said in a statement released by his attorneys. “I am not filing a lawsuit. I am not taking any legal action.”
“I told the truth because it was the right thing to do, not to make money. I sought counsel for guidance, just like every other party did. Time has passed, most people understand what happened, and I am moving forward to more important things in my life.”
This ends a story that was full of bizarre events with lying, changing stories, and Leavitt fighting to get his job back.
South Florida opens its spring practice under new head coach Skip Holtz later in March.
