Kent State University has filed a $1.2 million breach of contract lawsuit against its former men’s basketball coach Geno Ford.
According to the complaint, filed April 26 in Portage County, Ohio, Kent State is also seeking $25,000 from Ford for breach of fiduciary duty and $25,000 from Bradley University for tortuous interference with a contract. Ford is now head coach of the Bradley men’s basketball team.
Kent State claims that Ford ended his contract with the university without permission and never paid the school damages for the four years remaining on his agreement with the university. The complaint also contends that Bradley “intentionally induced Ford to breach” his KSU contract and did not pay Kent State an early departure fee.
Ford issued a statement saying that his departure from Kent State was “handled professionally and appropriately.”
