The University of California has acknowledged its negligence was a substantial factor in the death of former California football player Ted Agu. Experts believe sickle cell can affect some athletes during periods of intense exercise, when the inherited condition causes red blood cells to warp into stiff and sticky sickle shapes that block blood vessels and deprive vital organs and muscles of oxygen. The lawsuit alleged that coaches and trainers did not come to Agu's assistance when he was clearly struggling and that the university was negligent for hiring and retaining head football trainer Robert Jackson, who previously worked at Central Florida, where he oversaw a 2008 workout in which another athlete with sickle cell trait collapsed and later died.
