NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Former Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer is being sued by former OU wrestling coach Stan Abel for $90,000 and damages over a failed business deal.
According to court documents, Switzer and Abel - along with former Oklahoma wrestler Mozaffar Jahanguiri - were investors in The Lighthouse Restaurant on Lake Hefner's East Wharf, which failed to become profitable enough for the group and was eventually closed.
The lawsuit claims that Abel and Jahanguiri were promised their money back "on numerous occasions" over the years, but Switzer never paid up.
According to his voicemail, Switzer is out of the country for several days and unavailable for comment until he returns.
