Former Arkansas basketball coach Nolan Richardson sued the university in federal court, claiming its chancellor and athletic director discriminated against him because he is black and violated his free-speech rights.
Richardson asked a federal judge to return him to his old job. The current coach, Stan Heath, declined to comment.
Arkansas Chancellor John A. White fired Richardson on March 1 after the longtime basketball coach complained that he was being treated differently because he was black.
The former coach said in the lawsuit that he was under tremendous pressure when he said he wanted his contract bought out.
The school did buy him out on the remaining six years on his contract, agreeing to pay Richardson up to $3 million over the remaining seasons of what started as a seven-year pact.
