BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Attorneys representing the family of former California football player Ted Agu are planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the regents of the University of California.
Agu died following an offseason training run Feb. 7. Los Angeles-based firm Panish, Shea & Boyle said in a news release Monday that Cal's training staff took too long to respond to Agu's symptoms of ''extreme fatigue'' during the run.
A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday at the Alameda County Courthouse in Oakland to announce the suit.
The Alameda County Coroner's office said in April that Agu died of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is an excessive thickening of the heart muscle. Cal's office of public affairs did not immediately respond to a voicemail requesting comment on the lawsuit.
