UPDATE: Pitino and Jurich placed on leave, “effectively fired”

Yes, Rick Pitino and Tom Jurich are out at Louisville, but to make it official, the athletics association has to vote on it.

There were a lot of mixed signals coming out of UofL after a university spokesman denied initial reports that Jurich and Pitino had been fired, but according to Joe Sonka, protocol calls for the two to be put on leave until the athletics association makes the firings official. But, let there be zero doubt: as of now, the two are “effectively fired.”

Press conference coming at 1 p.m. We’ll do our best to stream it on the website, but if the server continues to flatline, tune into ESPN or 630 WLAP.
