Kent State wins $1.2 million judgment against ex-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.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Friday’s court ruling by a judge in Portage County, home of Kent State, reflects a state obligation to insure contract enforcement.

There was no immediate comment in response to messages left Tuesday for Ford and the Bradley University legal office handling media inquiries.

At the time of the lawsuit filing, Bradley said it had recruited Ford “in a straightforward and professional manner” with the consent of Kent State.
