Gundy lawsuit over OU shirt headed to trial
STILLWATER, Okla.- After allegedly firing a contractor more than two years ago, Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy is heading to court.
Brent Loveland filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Cowboy’s coach, claiming he was wrongfully terminated over a choice in his wardrobe.
He claims that he was part of a crew that was hired to install trim around Gundy’s home in 2011.
The job was worth about $80,000.
According to the lawsuit, the job was never finished because Loveland claims Gundy fired him for wearing an “Oklahoma baseball” shirt.
The shirt was brought to his attention when he said, “How dare you come into my house and offend my wife?”
Loveland says he is out the money from the job and $30,000 in potential income because he turned down other jobs during that time.
Now the breach-of-contract lawsuit will go before a jury in Payne County on August 19.
