CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - A jury ruled in favor of former SEMO men’s basketball coach Rick Ray.

According to court documents, all 12 jurors signed the verdict.

Documents state the jury’s verdict awarded him, pursuant to his contract, $94,128.76.

Ray took the university’s board of regents to court over the termination of his contract.

According to court records, a Cape Girardeau County jury heard the civil case in Jackson.

Ray filed the civil lawsuit, claiming the university breached the terms of his contract when leaders “relieved him of his position.”

Ray served as the men’s basketball coach from April 2015 to March 2020.
