Alabama parted ways with Avery Johnson last Sunday.

On Friday, the Montgomery Advertiser’s Alex Byington reported that the Tide are paying $5.5 million for Johnson’s buyout, and Johnson will receive the funds in a lump sum payment.

The former Tide coach signed an extension in 2017 that said he would be owed $8 million if he were to be fired without cause before April 15. Johnson and Alabama settled for $5.5 million.

“After meeting with Coach Johnson, we made the decision to mutually part ways,” Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne said in a statement Sunday. “This was not an easy decision, and we thank him for his contributions over the past four seasons. We wish Coach Johnson and his family the very best.”

Alabama has already hired Johnson’s replacement in former Buffalo head coach Nate Oats.
