'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Former Pitt football coach Michael Haywood apparently has settled his federal lawsuit against the university.

Lawyers for both sides on Tuesday filed a joint motion to dismiss the case.

The motion doesn't provide details of the agreement. Haywood's lawyer, Christopher Johns of Houston, Texas, couldn't be reached for comment.

University spokesman Ken Service declined comment.

Haywood, hired Dec. 15, 2012, claimed the university breached his contract and violated federal law when it fired him less than three weeks later following his arrest in South Bend, Ind., on domestic violence charges that subsequently were dismissed.

He was seeking $3.75 million in damages related to a clause in his five-year contract that required the university to pay him $750,000 a year if he was fired “without just cause.”
