Louisville AD: School is waiting on NCAA investigation
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich says his department has to “just wait” while the NCAA investigates an escort’s book allegations that former Cardinals men’s basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers for sex parties with players and recruits.
In a radio interview Wednesday with Louisville station WKRD 790-AM, Jurich said he doesn’t know any more about the NCAA’s investigation of Katina Powell’s allegations in “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen.” Several investigations are ongoing, but the school last winter self-imposed sanctions including a postseason ban after its investigation determined that a violation occurred.
Jurich says whatever the NCAA decides and when, “We’re going to deal with it up front like we always have. We’ll take our punishment, we’ll move on and we’ll get better from it.”
