Apparently Tom Jurich has no interest in the upcoming opening for the post of Big East Commissioner when Mike Tranghese retires. At least that’s what he told Linda in a response to an e-mail which she shared on Card Chronicle:
I just got a response from the email I sent to TJ the other day telling him how much we appreciate all that he has done and continues to do for U of L.Ã‚Â In that email I told him I hoped if the BE came calling that he wouldn’t leave Louisville/U of L to answer that call.
He emailed me todayÃ‚Â i.e….” Linda, rest assured I am NOT interested in the Big East Commissioner’s position”.Ã‚Â (he capitalized the NOT ).Ã‚Â He went on to say that he IS interested in securing a good replacement for Tranghese.Ã‚Â I am so glad to hear that TJ would not be interested in leaving for that position because I do feel as though he will be on the BE short list of possible replacements.
Way to go, Linda!
