Kenny Johnson’s and Jordan Fair’s Letters of Suspension were obtained by the Courier Journal through an Open Records request yesterday. The letters were actually composed by Acting Athletic Director Vince Tyra and sent out to both coaches on October 6th.
Of course, we all already know Jordan Fair has now been fired without cause and Johnson remains on paid administrative leave.

Jeff Greer of the Courier Journal, has written an article that details what was said in the suspension letters to both coaches. In the article, Greer writes, “In the letters, Tyra told both Johnson and Fair that they were not allowed on campus and could not have any contact with the men’s basketball staff, players or recruits. They were also ordered to cooperate with all school, NCAA and federal law enforcement investigations while on leave.”
Greer wrote that the letters advised both coaches that the UofL Athletics Association and the University are conducting an internal investigation into their roles in this pay for play scandal.
Here is an excerpt from the letter included by Greer in the article. “ULAA and the University are in the early stages of an internal investigation into NCAA and other issues that came to light last week when the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York announced that it had filed charges in United States v. Gatto. Your role in some of these matters is in question.”
