U of L furloughs 45 athletic staffers, announces pay cuts

The University of Louisville’s athletic department furloughed 45 staff members Wednesday and eliminated 40 staff positions in the latest budget moves due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Athletic director Vince Tyra also announced four percent pay cuts for staffers making more than $100-thousand, with those earning below that amount taking a two percent cut. The moves will save $1.5 million, but the furloughs, reductions and pay cuts do not include coaching staffs.
