University of Central Florida football coach George O’Leary is at the center of a lawsuit alleging he made racist comments about black players.

USA Today reports former UCF defensive coordinator Paul Ferraro — as part of his breach of contract lawsuit against the university — alleged O’Leary was the slightest bit racist.

O’Leary apparently called the NFL “one big Ru-Ru tribe” and told coaches to make sure their black players gums are blue, because they are “bigger, faster and stronger than [African-American players] with red gums.”

The university said the claims are without merit.

This isn’t the first time O’Leary has found himself in trouble. He was forced to resign from Notre Dame five days after being hired because he lied about ever playing a down of college football and attending a fake university in 2001.
