LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A former University of Louisville Football player is suing the University and Head Coach Charlie Strong.

Patrick Grant filed charges following a 2010 assault when he claims former teammates, Isaac and Jacob Geffrad, attacked him in the locker room.

Grant was hit so hard in the left eye he had to have two surgeries to save his eyesight.

The lawsuit filed claims the University coerced him into lying about how he was injured.

A spokesperson for the University said they just became aware of the suit and they do not comment on pending litigation.
