Kent State Files Lawsuit Against Former Coach Geno Ford

As if things weren't already pretty heated between the MAC and Missouri Valley Conference.

According to reports from both the Associated Press and the Record-Courier, Kent State is suing former head coach Geno Ford for more than $1.2 million in damages stemming from his departure for Bradley. The suit alleges Ford had no grounds to terminate his contract which was to run through 2015. Furthermore, the school is also seeking more than $25,000 in damages from Bradley who was alleged to have not only interfered with Ford's contract at Kent State, but also failed to pay the school and early termination fee.

Ford was announced as the new head coach at Bradley after a three-year stint at Kent State in which he was named MAC Coach of the Year twice, led the school to back-to-back regular season conference titles and compiled a record of 68-37 overall.

This one will be played out in the courts, but boy wouldn't it be fun to see the Golden Flashes and Braves go toe to toe this season on the floor in light of these recent allegations?
