Former Iona Coach Jeff Ruland Would Like to Get a Few Things Off His Chest

In a wild interview with Mike Francesa yesterday, former Iona basketball coach Jeff Ruland made allegations of racism at the university (he says he noticed a change in how he was treated when he began dating an African-American woman), that one of his assistants settled a discrimination suit with the university for $500,000, and that people associated with Iona have bad-mouthed him to prospective employers. He also says he'll take a lie-detector test to prove he's telling the truth and put up $100,000 against anyone who claims he's lying. You can listen to the whole thing here.
