Henry Frazier III, who was fired from North Carolina Central as head coach last year, is suing the university for breach of contract.
According to Durham Superior Court filings in April, Frazier alleged the school breached his contract by preventing him from defending himself against false allegations. In his complaint, Frazier cites a contract provision stating: “Any discipline under this subsection shall not violate the due process rights of Coach to defend himself against false and/or malicious prosecution or accusations.”
“Mr. Frazier’s ex-wife made claims against him that turned out to be untrue,” said Fraizer’s attorney, Adam Hopler to Independent Weekly. “Rather than wait for the court system to do its thing, they decided to terminate him for the sole purpose of publicity, it would seem.”
Frazier was fired by NCCU after his arrest stemming from a violation of a protective order held by his ex-wife.
Frazier was fired Aug. 22, 2013 following an investigation. He was later found not guilty during a court hearing a month later.
