 little over a year after being fired as Florida A&M basketball coach, Clemon Johnson is suing his alma mater for wrongful termination.

Johnson’s lawsuit cites breach of contract, breach of good faith and fair dealing, fraud and negligent misrepresentation, according to Tallahassee.com.

FAMU fired Johnson last April, just one week after Kellen Winslow Sr. took over as athletic director. Winslow resigned his post in December.

Johnson is the second former coach who has sued FAMU after being fired by Winslow. Former football coach and fellow alumnus Earl Holmes sued the school following his termination by Winslow last October.

Johnson was in third year of a four-year deal that paid him $150,000.
