Louisville announces Vince Tyra will serve as the Cardinals interim athletic director. Tyra steps in for Tom Jurich, whose 20-year career at U of L is in limbo following last week’s federal complaint alleging corruption in the men’s basketball program. Jurich was placed on administrative leave Sept. 27, a day after federal prosecutors made the charges public. His fate is in the hands of U of L’s board of trustees, which took no action on Monday after discussing the situation behind closed doors. Vince Tyra’s links to U of L grew stronger this year after he joined the board of the U of L Foundation in February. Tyra was part of a wholesale change of the organization’s 15-member board as the foundation looks to get its finances under control following the tenure of former U of L President James Ramsey, who ran the foundation until resigning last year. Tyra became chairman of the foundation’s finance committee, perhaps the second-most important role on the board. -Chris Otts, WDRB, Read More
