As pretty much everyone expected, U of L basketball assistants Kenny Johnson and Jordan Fair have been placed on administrative leave, leaving interim head coach David Padgett as the last man standing.

Here’s the release from U of L:

The University of Louisville has placed associate head men’s basketball coach Kenny Johnson and assistant men’s basketball coach Jordan Fair on paid administrative leave, effective immediately.

“We are in the process of executing our due diligence as it relates to an ongoing investigation and feel that this is an appropriate step at this time,” said U of L Acting Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. “Our university will continue to fully cooperate with federal authorities in their investigation.”
