[stextbox id=”warning”]Dear Tom Jurich,I have been a University of Louisville football fan since 1979. One of my first dates with my husband was attending a Louisville football game. Over the years, we’ve been to 95% of the home games and attended at least two on the road every season.
The recent performance in Cincinnati was embarrassing because of a superior opponent and poor leadership. But there’s a difference between being outclassed and not showing up as a team. We clearly missed the bus that day. As a long-time fan, I have lost confidence in his ability to create a winning program at Louisville and would implore you to make a change at this position. I do not believe that a winning tradition of Louisville football can ever exist under Steve Kragthorpe.
I will support my defensive heroes and other football players when they take the field. I have a disclaimer, “Love the players, love the game” but I can no longer watch these kids struggle under inadequate leadership.
The removal of a head coach is a difficult thing to do and no coaching decision will be made until the season is over in all likelihood. But please make a change as soon as possible.
