Former Fresno State Athletic Director Jim Bartko says that he, “Did not leave the University by choice or for ‘personal reasons.'” That mirrors the language used in Fresno State’s announcement back in November 2017. At the time the University said that Bartko was leaving the top sports job after three years due to “personal reasons.” In a statement released Wednesday, Bartko says he has filed an administrative claim to preserve his right to file a lawsuit against the University.
