The University of Houston issued a press release clarifying details of the Michael Young contract, lawsuit, and his son Joseph's transfer and waiver request. For our purposes, there are two key facts in the waiver. First is that Michael Young's contract (the new one) was terminated on June 17, 2013, although he will be paid under the contract through July 17. That should clear the path for the waiver request by Oregon. Young is well and truly separated from the university. That means his lawsuit would be about him and Houston is it continues, and will have little or no impact on Joseph's waiver.
