A recently released from prison OJ Simpson reportedly passed on the offer to become UofL’s interim Athletic Director before the offer was finally extended to and accepted by Vince Tyra. Many felt Simpson would be a good fit as he was a stand out athlete on both the collegiate and professional levels and understood how to deal with the media as he was once (in this writer’s opinion) the true star of the Naked Gun films.
Simpson, however, felt that taking a job with the University of Louisville in it’s current state may tarnish his legacy. “No one has had a fall from grace like Coach Pitino,” Simpson said. “It’s hard to even fathom what that must feel like.”
“While I don’t feel that now is the right time for me to get associated with the University, I have reached out to Coach Pitino and recommended a ghost writer and sold him the title for his upcoming book, ‘If I Did It.’” Simpson continued, “sometimes the best way to get over something that you definitely didn’t do is to write a book detailing step by step how you would’ve done it if you did it. That way people know you’re innocent.”
