Updated information Monday on a university website showed the bill at $42.9 million as of the end of January.

It’s an increase of nearly $2 million from the previous update last month.

The bill includes the first of the five annual installments of $12 million to pay off the fine imposed by the NCAA as part of strict sanctions. About $8.4 million covered university legal services or defense.

Another $5 million paid for the legal defense fees of individuals including those for three former school administrators facing criminal charges related to the scandal.
