09:33 AM ET 02.13 | A donor who demanded the return of $3 million from the University of Connecticut because he was unhappy with the hiring of its new football coach has agreed to let the school keep the money, university officials said Friday. Robert Burton and the university agreed to move past their differences after UConn Board of Trustees Chairman Larry McHugh met with him and his family, McHugh said in a news release.

This is why Penn State will not push Jo Pa out the door because they are afraid of the backlash from the older alumnai.

Nice of the guy. LOL ... He didn't have much choice but to let them keep the money. Wouldn't have looked to good going thru court trying to get back monies he "donated" to the school.

As Bug Bunny always liked to say, "What a MAROON!"

True. But he got the UConn president to stroke his, ummm, ego so now everybody is happy.
