UT President Joe Johnson did not return a call from The News-Sentinel for comment, but he told the Associated Press he could not discuss the case either.
UT President Joe Johnson said, "I'm sure we'll get a letter or a bill from the mediator, and when we get that we'll be glad to share that with (the media).''
added, "It couldn't probably be a phenomenal amount of money because it wasn't a phenomenal amount of time."
said all costs related to the mediation, including the $300,000, will come from the Athletic Department budget.
Asked for further comment on the case, which put Peyton Manning's mooning incident back in the national spotlight, Johnson
cited the confidentiality agreement but added, "I'm glad we were able to resolve it and get about our business.''
Asked if UT would make changes after the Whited affair, UT President Joe Johnson said Friday, "We may have to redouble our efforts'' in understanding how to avoid sexual harassment, but that in a system with 12,000 staff and 42,000 students, someone's likely to slip.
"We've got a stack of books yea-high saying you don't steal from a university, but we had a band director that stole $65,000,'' Johnson said, referring to a scandal involving a former director.
