The University of Louisville announced in a statement Wednesday night that it has “parted ways” with assistant men’s basketball coach Jordan Fair. “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 from the athletic department read. “He will continue to be paid for 30 days.” That clause in Fair’s contract allows the athletic director to fire Fair “at-will and without cause” with 30 days’ notice. Louisville athletics spokesman Kenny Klein said interim athletic director Vince Tyra made the decision. Fair is paid an annual salary of $200,000 along with a $6,000 car allowance and receives four men’s basketball season tickets. Fair was placed on paid administrative leave last week amid the FBI’s investigation into college basketball recruiting at several institutions, including Louisville. Associate head coach Kenny Johnson was also placed on paid leave at that time. His status has not changed, the release said Wednesday. -Jake Lourim, The Courier-Journal, Read More
