Today, Acting Head Coach David Padgett and Acting Athletic Director Vince Tyra are set to announce the addition of Greg Paulus to the UofL Men’s Basketball coaching staff per Courier Journal reporter Jeff Greer.

Paulus played 4 years under legendary Coach Mike Krzyzewski at Duke. 3 of his 4 years were as Duke’s starting Point Guard before he was relegated to the bench for his senior year.

Paulus then took an interest in football and, as a graduate transfer, transferred to Syracuse and was their starting Quarterback for one season. He led the team to a 4-8 record.

After trying out for the NFL, Paulus joined the ranks of college basketball again. This time as a coach. In 2010, he was hired as an assistant coach at Navy. Then in 2011, he was hired by Thad Matta to the position of video coordinator for the Ohio State University basketball team. Eventually, in 2013, Matta promoted him to assistant coach and he coached there through last season.

Paulus was born in Ohio and raised in Wisconsin until his family settled in Syracuse, NY, where he attended high school at Christian Brothers Academy.

Thank You Tom: A Tribute to the Legacy of Tom Jurich

All good things must come to an end. I didn’t see Tom Jurich’s tenure coming to an end in such an inglorious fashion. I enjoyed having him as Athletic Director of my Alma Mater because I believe he cared about UofL Athletics as much as I do.

I was born here in Louisville, raised here in Louisville, and I graduated from Louisville. I am Louisville. UofL sports is woven into the intricate fabric of Louisville. I love the games, the atmosphere, the camaraderie of fans, the players, and the games. It’s all wondrous to me. And to me, the face of UofL Athletics wasn’t a coach, it was Tommy “The Turtleneck” Jurich.

WDRB’s Bill Lamb States His Case For UofL To Keep Tom Jurich

WDRB’s Bill Lamb, in his “Point of View” editorial segment last night, offered his opinion on the situation between the UofL Board of Trustees and suspended Athletic Director Tom Jurich.

Lamb explains that he believes that Tom Jurich should be retained. He argues that Jurich’s full body of work should be taken into account. Speaking on Jurich, Lamb says, “No person in the history of the University has done more to build it into what it is today than Tom Jurich.” He specifically mentions Jurich’s work in getting UofL into the ACC as a major factor for retaining him.

Lamb believes that the posturing by certain Board members and their rabid attempt to oust Jurich, “has a lot more to do with their egos than what’s right for UofL.”

When speaking of the certain, unnamed Board members, Lamb states, “I believe there are Board members who are willing tear UofL down just to show how powerful they’ve become. It’s all about them, not the University.”

He also mentions that some big money donors hope to persuade other Board members to step up, do the right thing, and vote to keep Jurich.
