Report: Louisville asked fired athletic employee to cooperate with FBI investigations

There’s more news coming from the fallout of the shakeup going on in the Louisville athletic department.

The Courier Journal reports fired employee, former associate athletic director of marking Julianne Waldron, was asked to continue to cooperate with any university investigations “that in any way touch upon the activities of current or former members of the Department of Athletics.”

The department let go of Waldron on Feb. 2. She was fired with two other employees, senior associate athletic director of development Mark Jurich and associate athletic director of human resources Kim Maffet as part of what Louisville is calling a departmental “restructuring.”

According to files obtained by The Courier Journal, Waldron played a role in landing the long-term deal with Adidas, but she was not previously involved in any investigations.

The Louisville newspaper also reports Waldron, along with Jurich, were instructed to have “no physical presence on campus or any of the campus athletics facilities.” And similar to Waldron, Jurich, who is the son of fired Cardinals athletic director Tom Jurich, was told to cooperate with any investigations.

Waldron led the marketing for the athletics department at Louisville starting in 2014. She will remain on paid leave until March 5. Mark Jurich will be on paid leave until April 3.
