Kent State wins claim against coach

KENT, Ohio — Kent State has won a $1.2 million judgment against former men’s basketball coach Geno Ford for leaving in 2011 to become coach at Bradley.

The lawsuit claimed Ford had no permission to terminate his Kent State contract, which was scheduled to expire in 2015. Ford’s teams went 68-37 in three seasons at Kent State.

Bradley University issued a statement Tuesday saying its actions and Ford’s actions “have been entirely ethical, legal, and transparent. The lawsuit is ongoing and will continue to be addressed through the court system.”

While Kent State agreed to let Ford talk to Bradley, “Consent to interview was not a consent to breach the employment contract,” Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow said. “KSU did not acquiesce to Coach Ford’s abandonment of their mutual contract.”
