Jurich To Linda: ‘NOT Interested In BE Post’

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.  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 today  i.e….” Linda, rest assured I am NOT interested in the Big East Commissioner’s position”.  (he capitalized the NOT ).  He went on to say that he IS interested in securing a good replacement for Tranghese.  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!
