Report: Fresno State, Jim Bartko reach “mutual settlement”


FRESNO, Calif. – Fresno State and Jim Bartko have reportedly reached a “mutual settlement” to the wrongful termination claim that Bartko filed against the university last June.

The Fresno Bee was the first media outlet to report the news on Friday afternoon.

Jim Bartko was Fresno State’s Director of Athletics from early 2015 through late 2017. He left for personal reasons that did become public.

Bartko asked for $3 million in damages. It is not known at this time how much money he received in the settlement.

“The university has reached a mutual settlement with Mr. Bartko. No further comment will be provided,” read a statement from Fresno State that was published in the Fresno Bee.
