Gateway School District and its former athletic director have apparently settled his racial discrimination lawsuit, according to federal court documents.

Terry M. Smith, 44, was also the district's head football coach. He claimed in the lawsuit that the school board forced him to resign in January 2013 because he's black.

The district denied it discriminated against Smith, who is now an assistant football coach at Penn State.

U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti on Thursday approved a motion by both sides to dismiss the lawsuit.

Lawyers for Smith and the district couldn't be reached for comment. District spokeswoman Cara Zanella had no immediate comment.
