The FBI's probe into nefarious recruiting in college basketball has now cost a second coach at Louisville his job. The school announced Wednesday night that assistant coach Jordan Fair has been terminated without cause. "The University of Louisville has parted ways with assistant men's basketball coach Jordan Fair, exercising the option in his contract to terminate his employment without cause," the statement reads. "He will continue to be paid for 30 days. Associate head men's basketball coach Kenny Johnson remains on paid administrative leave." Fair was promoted to Cardinals assistant in March. Johnson and Fair were put on paid leave Oct. 6. Fair's dismissal came a little more than five hours after Louisville held a press conference to announce former Stanford and TCU coach Trent Johnson had been brought on as the first full-time assistant under interim Cardinals coach David Padgett. Despite being effectively removed from the program, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino has not formally been terminated by the university. He was put on unpaid leave on Sept. 27 and the school has stated, per his contract terms, he will remain on leave until April or until the resolution of the federal government's case, which Louisville is connected to.
