UofL Foundation CFO Robert Mims is now the former UofL Foundation CFO after he was let go from his position following his arrest for stealing from the UofL Golf Club. (That’s so bizarre to write.)
Mims admitted to his crime of stealing three items from the pro shop, thus ending his two-week run in his position within the foundation.
But now there’s some controversy surrounding who exactly brought Mims on board in the first place. Card Chronicle’s report said UofL President Greg Postel recommended Sims for the position, but now Postel is saying that is simply not true.
A statement to ESPN680 on Friday read, “Dr. Postel, in fact, played no role in hiring Mims. Further, he has not even met Mims, who began working for the Foundation two weeks ago.”

Drama! Card Chronicle’s source is likely within the athletics side of the university, and Postel’s office was quick to come out and refute the report.
Sounds like we have some inner university beef brewing between athletics and academics.
