Trinity Western University and Stan Peters, former men's basketball head coach, have reached a mutually agreeable settlement of their legal dispute.

Ron Kuehl, Senior Vice President of External Relations comments, "We are pleased that Mr. Peters and Trinity Western University have been able to settle this matter in a mutually satisfactory way. We look forward to continued success with our athletic program and wish Mr. Peters success in his future endeavors. Stan's dedication to teach his players how to work hard and maximize their abilities and his passion to mentor his players will be closely associated with his tenure as coach from 1999-2007. "
