Adding even more insult to Louisville fans’ injury, UofL introduced Vince Tyra, a University of Kentucky graduate and former athlete, as its new interim athletic director. Tyra was a four-year letterman on the Kentucky baseball team.
As fun as it is to have a Wildcat infiltrating enemy territory, it’s not as good as it sounds. Tyra is the son of a UofL basketball legend; he is a long-time supporter of UofL athletics; and he became a member of the UofL Foundation Board earlier this year.
Tyra will take over AD duties for Tom Jurich, although it sounds like Jurich will eventually be back to claim his evil throne.
In the meantime, it is Tyra’s responsibility to get the Cards on track for reaching the ULAA 2017-18 goal:
