Louisville interim president Greg Postel filed an official letter on Monday placing athletic director Tom Jurich on paid administrative leave, and the list of grievances against Jurich paint a picture of a shady deal that was worked out with Adidas. According to Andrew Wolfson of the Courier-Journal, Postel wrote that Jurich recently worked out a $160 million contract extension with Adidas “without timely or appropriate consultation with me or members of U of L Athletic Association Board.” Postel also told reporters he had no knowledge of the new deal until it was complete. “It would have been nice to know more about the agreement beforehand,” the university president said Monday. Postel ordered Jurich last spring to start attending meetings with Louisville’s board of trustees after a powerful booster complained that the AD wasn’t listening to input from the board. “You are the vice president of athletics and an administrator of the university,” Postel wrote in his letter. “Your contract requires you to perform your duties in an exemplary fashion, to demonstrate adherence to all state, federal and local laws and ordinances.”
