The Poughkeepsie Journal has learned that Marist is suing former men's head coach Matt Brady over his departure to James Madison University in Virginia.
According to Brady's contract, he had to have written consent from Marist College before pursuing any other job opportunities. In addition, JMU apparently knew about this and signed Brady anyway. This came months after Brady signed a four-year extension with Marist.
I talked to Marist AD Tim Murray days after this occurred back in 2008, and he did say he was really surprised Brady leftt, but made no mention that Brady violated his contract.
Evidently, Brady's contract stipulated he could not take any recruits with him to JMU, which he obviously did. Julius Wells went on to have an excellent season in the CAA.
There had been some rumblings in previous days that Marist was planning on making an announcement in regards to a legal matter, and today we learned of the report.
