LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Louisville acting athletics director Vince Tyra will be paid $100,000 per month, or $1.2 million, under a one-year contract approved by the U of L's board of trustees on Wednesday.

The board fired Tyra's predecessor, Tom Jurich, after a 20-year stint at the school later on Wednesday.

A resolution approving Tyra's employment says he can be fired immediately for wrongdoing, or for any reason with 30 days notice.

Tyra, a local businessman, declined to say Wednesday whether he intends to seek the job permanently.

"I think that's an unfair question at this point," he said. "... I didn't come here with an agenda. I came to help."
