Two months ago Robert Wells, the former football coach at historically black university Savannah State, filed a lawsuit against the school claiming he was forced to resign on Jan. 28 because his fiancee is black.
Wells, who is white, also noted in the complaint filed to U.S. District Court in Atlanta that the school was hurting his reputation by claiming he committed recruiting violations.
Tuesday a lawsuit against the school was filed by four white students who Wells previously recruited to SSU and promised scholarships. The four were scheduled to visit the university on Jan. 30 and 31, “to sign their letters of intent to enroll at and play football for SSU.”
But after Wells resigned on Jan. 28, the students’ scholarships were apparently pulled.
