COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Ohio Supreme Court has declined to hear Ohio State's appeal of fired coach Jim O'Brien's lawsuit against the university.
O'Brien, the men's basketball coach at Ohio State from 1998 until 2004, was fired after he told athletic director Andy Geiger that he had given a $6,000 loan to a prospective recruit.
O'Brien sued the university for wrongfully firing him and won $2.2 million plus interest in the Ohio Court of Claims in 2006. The university appealed to the Supreme Court after an appeals court upheld the award.
