Bruin Report Onlinea€™s Tracy Pierson says the school and Alford spent much of the day on SundayA negotiating the coacha€™s buyout before reaching an agreement.

Alford was in his sixth season on the job and in the middle of an ugly four-game losing streak that was bookended by home losses to Belmont and Liberty. The latter came on Saturday, a day before Alford was fired. The Bruins are 7-6 and have suffered blowout losses to North Carolina, Michigan State, Cincinnati and Ohio State, in addition to the defeats to Belmont and Liberty.
