One of Travis Ford’s former players at Oklahoma State is suing him, according to Matt Norlander at CBSSports.com.
Stevie Clark, a freshman guard for the Cowboys in 2013-14, claims Ford coerced him into taking “mind-altering drugs” at Oklahoma State, leading Clark to think suicidal thoughts. Clark also accuses Ford of offering him a Camaro during his recruitment and not following through, as well as accusations that Marcus Smart hazed him.
The Tulsa World first obtained Clark’s suit, which also alleges, per the World, that “Clark claims that he faced ‘hazing and disrespect’ from teammate Marcus Smart. … When he expressed frustration to Ford, Clark alleges he was put on psychotropic drugs without his consent. He was required to take the medication to continue practicing with the team, according to the complaint.” [CBSSport.com]

At Kentucky, Ford set school records in single-game assists (15), single-season three-point field goals (101) and consecutive free throws made (50). He’s also a graduate of Madisonville North Hopkins High School, so you know he’s good people.
