UofL BASKETBALL | Louisville Parts Ways With Assistant Coach Kenny Johnson

11/22/2017 10:58 AM

The University of Louisville announced Wednesday that it had “parted ways with associate head men’s basketball coach Kenny Johnson, terminating his employment per the provisions in his contract.”

Johnson, along with former assistant Jordan Fair, had been placed on administrative leave back on October 6, stemming from the F.B.I investigation into a college basketball pay-for-play scheme.

Johnson was hired by Louisville in 2014, after spending two years at Indiana. Prior to that, he had coached one year at Towson and spent six years with an AAU program.

Johnson was regarded as Louisville’s top recruiter.

The university announced it will have no further comment.
