Louisville interim president Greg Postel and athletic director Tom Jurich made statements after 11 hours of meetings with the NCAA

Louisville interim president Greg Postel and athletic director Tom Jurich made statements after 11 hours of meetings with the NCAA Committee on Infractions today in Cincinnati.

After more than 11 hours of meeting with the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions on Thursday, the University of Louisville released a statement from interim president Dr. Greg Postel.

The meeting in Cincinnati started around 8:30 a.m. and didn't wrap up until around 7 p.m. Postel, U of L athletic director Tom Jurich and U of L men's basketball coach Rick Pitino were among the U of L representatives in the meetings.

The school released the following statement from Postel:

"We anticipated and received a full and fair review of the facts in the case today by the Committee on Infractions. We had the opportunity to present the information as we wished. It is anticipated that the Committee on Infractions will inform the institution on the specific findings and penalties in approximately six to eight weeks. We look forward to the final resolution of this matter."

Jurich told WDRB after the meeting that it was "very productive."

"From day one, we said we would tell the truth," Jurich said. "This was my first time really to be around Dr. Postel and certainly it was a very challenging environment and I couldn't be more proud of him."

Jurich said the day was "very, very thorough." He said they were not allowed to answer any questions about the investigation.
