Ramsey likes his University of Louisville contract

Dr. Jim Ramsey

Some of the individuals intent on writing off Jim Ramsey’s future as President of the University of Louisville are going to have to revise their scripts, possibly rearrange their agendas, go back to the drawing board.

Ramsey says he’s planning on honoring his contract through the year 2020.

Ramsey, seen above at the UofL-Virginia women’s basketball game Thursday night, told reporters earlier in the day, “I’ve got a contract until 2020. And right now, while I’ve been thinking about retirement, I’m 67, I’m planning on staying at this time to finish my contract.”

As for a possibility of him rescinding the self-imposed ban on post-season basketball, there is absolutely no way that’s going to happen.

No one ever accused Ramsey of running away from a fight.
