Louisville sends fired athletic director Tom Jurich official terminator letter

The University of Louisville sent athletic director Tom Jurich a rather poignant termination letter Tuesday afternoon. Actually, it might be better to describe it as “angry.”

In the first sentence in the ninth paragraph of the University of Louisville interim President Greg Postel accused Jurich of “ineffective management, divisive leadership and unprofessional conduct” and also said Jurich “engaged in willful misconduct” for several years.

The Courier-Journal acquired the terminator letter from Postel through Kentucky’s open-records act. He also accused Jurich of failing to supervise his head coaches.

“This culture has now culminated with an FBI investigation implicating certain members of the University’s men’s basketball program in a scheme of fraud and malfeasance in the recruitment of student athletes,” the letter states according to The Courier-Journal. “Your significant and habitual dereliction of duties has caused substantial damage to the Athletic Department and the University as a whole.”

So much for any hope of Jurich returning as Louisville athletic director.
