 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The family of former California football player Ted Agu has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Regents of the University of California.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday at the Alameda County Courthouse in Oakland alleges ''reckless and negligent behavior'' by Cal's training staff and university officials. It also says the university was negligent for hiring trainer Robert Jackson, who previously worked at Central Florida, where he was the sole certified athletic trainer present when football player Ereck Plancher died following conditioning drills in March 2008.
Agu died following an offseason training run Feb. 7 in Berkeley. The lawsuit says that, like Plancher, Agu had sickle cell trait and should not have been put through a ''lethal conditioning drill.''
