KENT, Ohio -- Kent State University has dismissed its claims against Bradley University for alleged contract interference involving former men's basketball coach Geno Ford, who left the Golden Flashes in 2011 to coach at Bradley.
Kent State earlier won a $1.2 million judgment against Ford.
The lawsuit claimed Ford didn't have permission to terminate his Kent State contract, which was scheduled to expire in 2015.
Bradley says its actions and Ford's actions in the interview process were legal and transparent.
A Kent State spokeswoman says dismissing the claims against the Illinois university still allows the Ohio school to pursue litigation against Bradley if Ford doesn't fulfill the earlier judgment.
Ford's teams went 68-37 in three seasons at Kent State. His Braves are 25-42 in two seasons, with an 18-17 record last season.
