Arizona Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart and his former girlfriend, Brynn Cameron, reached a custody deal over their 10-month-old son, Cole, in Los Angeles court Monday.

"Yes, I can confirm that" an agreement was reached, said Ron Rale, an attorney for Cameron, outside the courtroom after a hearing that lasted less than 10 minutes.

Before the hearing, a source close to the case said that child support issues were resolved "a couple weeks ago" and that Monday's hearing related to custody arrangements only.

Cameron, 21, who plans a return to USC's basketball team this fall, looked upbeat as she waited with family members before the hearing.

Leinart, 24, did not show in court. Instead, his attorney Laura Wasser (who is also Britney Spears's divorce lawyer) was on hand.

In a July interview with the Ventura County Star, Cameron criticized Leinart's parenting, saying she spends "99.9 percent of the time" with Cole and that "it's been hard when I'm doing all the work, but he gets all the credit."

Leinart fired back two days later, telling PEOPLE that he's "gone to great lengths to increase my custodial time with Cole. This includes seeking intervention from the family law court."

A source close to Leinart added: "He only wants to spend time with his little boy, that's it. He flies in from Arizona every week to see his baby. [Cameron's] a great mom, he has nothing bad to say about her."

The athletic pair dated briefly but split in late 2006.

A rep for Leinart, as well as Cameron, had no comment.
