The University of Louisville has announced it will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. (ET) about the college basketball scandal revealed on Tuesday.

Several media reports out of Louisville Wednesday morning say that Cardinals’ Athletics Director Tom Jurich has been fired. While some reports state there has been no word on Coach Rick Pitino’s status, other breaking news reports on Twitter say Pitino has been fired.

Jurich has been relieved of duties pending approval of the university board of trustees, according to Mike Rutherford of Cardchronicle.com and other outlets.

Interim university president Gregory Postel said neither Jurich nor Pitino would be in attendance at today’s press conference.
