In the market for a red Louisville Cardinals-themed guitar? How about a Louisville Cardinals black leather jacket?
Perhaps you’d like a personally signed Louisville football stadium poster from a youthful coach Bobby Petrino’s first season with the Cardinals.
More than 200 items of furniture, jewelry, clothing and University of Louisville memorabilia from what is reported to be the onetime Louisville home of former athletics director Tom Jurich has been put up for auction.
Louisville’s WHAS11.com said Friday the Jurich family confirmed it had put 250 items that were housed in their sold Lake Forest and Rough River home on the auctioning website Ebth.com (Everything But the House).
Never miss a local story.
There are 235 items on the website listed under “18LOU011” which include several themed and unthemed men’s and women’s watches, home furnishings, Louisville and Adidas pullover shirts and outerwear, sports equipment, commemorative posters, golf shoes and baseball cleats. Other odd items include a black Lab statue, a stuffed black bear and a West Bend “Stir Crazy” Popcorn Popper.
Jurich and men’s basketball head coach Rick Pitino were fired by the university in October in the wake of an FBI investigation into alleged corruption in college basketball, though neither was named in the ongoing case. A Wall Street Journal report Thursday threw into question the undercover government agent involved in the case. That unnamed agent has been accused of spending government money on gambling, food and beverages, according to the report.
WHAS reported Friday that Jurich is living in homes in Colorado and Florida but plans to buy a smaller home in Louisville in the future.
