Former University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach Billy Gillespie is suing his one-time employer for being fired without cause.
Gillespie, who led the Wildcats to a subpar 40-27 record during his two-year stint in Lexington, is seeking at least $6 million in damages.
(Raucous laughter boiling over into hysterics)
The 24-page lawsuit filed by Gillespie’s attorneys portrays the ex-coach as an up-and-comer who was victimized by the university’s “false representations” towards honoring the contract offered to the 49-year-old.
(Tears now, tears)
The lawsuit goes on to accuse the university of fraud, and detail the “make-believe world” that Gillespie’s former bosses live in.
