According to The Detroit News, Blackwell, who is already suing Dantonio in federal court for wrongful termination, filed a second suit in Wayne County Circuit Court on Monday, alleging that he was the subject of racial discrimination when he was fired as recruiting coordinator in May of 2017. Blackwell is a black man.

Others named as defendants in the suit include former Michigan State University president Lou Anna K. Simon, former athletic director Mark Hollis, and current athletic director Bill Beekman.
