A $3.5M Settlement Was Rewarded to the Family of a Maryland Football Player Who Died During Practice

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland has agreed to a $3.5 million settlement with the parents of football player Jordan McNair, who died of heatstroke following a workout in 2018.

The amount was made public on Friday in a meeting agenda released by the Maryland Board of Public Works. It must be approved at the board’s meeting on Jan. 27.

The payout will be given to McNair’s parents, Marty McNair and Tonya Wilson

Jordan McNair collapsed during an outdoor conditioning practice held by the team on May 29, 2018. The 19-year-old was treated at the team training complex before being transported to the hospital, where he died two weeks later, on June 13.

Wallace Loh, who was then president of the school, acknowledged that Maryland handled the treatment of Jordan McNair poorly.
