    Rick Pitino and Tom Jurich

    In today’s corruption at Louisville news, the Courier-Journal uncovered a pretty insane truth regarding how Tom Jurich’s income compares to other parts of the university.

    According to the C-J’s story, Jurich is paid more than UofL’s entire History department. And its Mathematics department. And its English department. And its Biology department.

    Jurich brings in more than all four!

    Although the annuity was earned over several years and will be paid out in $200,000 installments, his listed income last year was more than the university budgeted for its departments of Biology ($3.3 million), English ($4 million), History ($2.4 million) or Mathematics ($3.5 million). [C-J]
    And he is paid double what the second highest-paid AD in the country makes!

    Jurich’s compensation was more than twice the $1.98 million paid to the next best-paid AD, Ohio State’s Gene Smith, according to a Courier-Journal survey. The only athletic director who has come close was Vanderbilt’s David Williams, who earned $3.2 million in 2010, but he also was the university’s general counsel and vice chancellor at the time, as well as a tenured law professor. [C-J]
    Then there is the story of Rick Pitino’s cut from the university’s current deal with adidas. Again from the C-J, Pitino raked in 98 percent of the cash from the deal. NINETY EIGHT PERCENT!!!!

    In fact, under [the University of Louisville’s] current deal with Adidas, which expires July 1, 98 percent of the cash provided by Adidas goes to one person: Rick Pitino, the now-suspended head coach.

    In 2015-16, for example, $1.5 million went to Pitino under his personal services agreement with the apparel company while just $25,000 went to the program, according to a contract obtained by the Courier-Journal under the state public records act.

    The year before, Pitino also got $1.5 million, while the department banked just $10,000. [C-J]
    That’s not a deal with Louisville; that’s a deal with Rick Pitino.

    May I remind you, Jurich tried to make everyone, namely the taxpayers, believe the athletic department is struggling financially. Maybe so if he and Rick are taking everything home with them, which they were.
    This corruption and greed over there is mind-boggling, as is the continued support of Jurich.

    They also uncovered that the UofL athletic department doesn't even turn a profit.

    I imagine you will get no argument from anyone about just how much Tom Jurich has done for the University of Louisville. But, ANY ATHLETIC DIRECTOR who has/will have two MAJOR NCAA VIOLATIONS on their watch ceases to be in the “best AD in the country” conversation.

    I wonder how much of the new deal was going to go to Pitino? 98% of $160,000,000 is quite a bit!

    All the people that still support Tom Jurich have lost their mind.

    Well that likely ends any chance of Jurich coming back.

    Looks like Pitino is the Gordon Gekko of college basketball.

    If I remember correctly, the great majority of the consideration UL was to receive from the Adidas deal consisted of apparel for the various teams. Don't believe there was much cash involved at all.

    $160,000,000 worth of uniforms? That deal was primarily cash.

    When you factor in the price of Yeezys Pitino was spotted wearing several times the costs can get pretty high. 98% sounds about right.

    Tom Jurich literally has the best job ever. Talk about a man taking advantage of an institution. Louisville is corrupt. They need a cleansing .
