Private detective hired to investigate Tom Jurich

Tom Jurich’s split with the University of Louisville was a messy one, and it might get even messier.

The Courier-Journal is reporting a private detective agency has been hired to look into Jurich’s time at UofL, likely to dig up anything new to further paint Jurich in a negative light. The agency, Kentucky Special Investigative Unit, called the C-J seeking information on “any allegations of sexual harassment between Jurich and females involved with the University,” it says in the C-J’s report.

UofL president Greg Postel denies any involvement in the hiring of the agency:

Though Jurich’s attorney, Sheryl Snyder, called it “irregular” to engage a good private investigator on the gold coast in a breach-of-contract dispute, the move is consistent with the millions of dollars at stake and university’s surprisingly aggressive strategy with a long-prized employee.

Postel said Saturday that the hiring of a private detective was not his doing. Stoll Keenon Ogden, the law firm representing the university in the Jurich matter, declined to comment on whether it was funding the investigation, citing attorney-client privilege.

“Due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, we are bound by law to maintain our client’s confidentiality,” Kentucky Special Investigative Unit director Steve Thomas said. “No comment.”

Do Jurich and UofL have a potential court battle ahead?

It will be an explosive one, if that is the case.

    Jerry Springer and Maury Povich working together couldn’t come up with anything trashier than University 6.

    Q: Why is that man smiling?

    A: Because he bilked the University of Louisville and the Commonwealth of Kentucky out of millions of dollars.

    Seems like an FBI investigation for embezzlement might make more sense.

    That’s what I love about this site. Louisville stories break on here before they do UofL sites. Keep me posted.

      Actually, the CJ broke the story (a Louisville paper), first. However I am glad you come here, to check for your sports news about the University of Louisville.

      I don’t read the CJ. I don’t care for all the popups and ads. This site works better. I dont even mind reading a UK story every now and then but strangely they never run them on UofL sites. Good grief it’s like they don’t care about you guys. smh

      Don’t know, don’t care. It’s on video for the world to see. 2,3, whatever, been there and done that.

    • Ineligible players = didn’t happen.

      As always I’ll give you credit for coming in here and taking the heat no matter how low UL goes into the sewer.

      So video evidence of how to win by cheating. That’s the ACC way, pay for play, fake classes…probably the only way UofLittleBro could hang a banner.

    it wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out that Jurich orchestrated this whole thing.
