College Corruption-Louisville-Jurich

Louisville settles for $4.5 M with ex-AD Jurich over firing

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville reached a $4.5 million settlement with former athletic director Tom Jurich, who was fired in the wake of a national federal corruption investigation of college basketball.

Jurich disputed his firing on Oct. 18 for cause after nearly 20 years as AD and had considered suing the school. The University of Louisville Athletic Association and Board of Trustees on Friday approved the settlement. Jurich's employment ended "without cause" as a result of his resignation, also described in the settlement as "retirement."
