LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Below is an updated timeline of the day's developments in the University of Louisville athletic department. This feed includes confirmed updates from the WAVE 3 News team, including tweets from our reporters in the field. Please refresh this page for the latest updates:

1:18 - UofL spokesman John Karman issued the following statement after Interim President Dr. Greg Postel's press conference:

1:10 - The next scheduled Board of Trustees meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 18. That's when the Board is expected to vote on whether to fire athletic director Tom Jurich and basketball coach Rick Pitino. The Board also has the option to call an emergency meeting before then for the same purpose.

1:05 - Interim UofL President Postel said the university will work with the NCAA.

1:04 - Tom Jurich has been placed on unpaid leave. An interim coach and AD will be named within 48 hours.

1:03 - Rick Pitino is now on unpaid leave.

1:02 - The interim AD will name the interim coach.

12:15 - AD Jurich is relieved of his duties, and can only be fired at a Board of Trustees meeting.

11:20 - John Ramsey confirms to WAVE 3 News that Tom Jurich is being relieved of his duties in advance of his firing.

11:02 - Head coach Rick Pitino entered Interim President Greg Postel's office; the meeting reportedly lasted less than ten minutes.

Tom Jurich didn't say much to reporters gathered at Grawemeyer Hall early Wednesday morning.

The UofL athletic director had a meeting in the building that houses the university's office of the president and other administrative offices.

The school's basketball team is one of several high-profile programs included in the FBI's massive investigation into a cash-for-talent bribery scheme involving recruits, apparel giant Adidas and hundreds of thousands of dollars of cash payments.

Jurich walked out of Grawemeyer Hall just minutes after he entered the building. On the way in and on the way out, he offered the standard rebuffs to reporters, such as "don't know anything about it" and "thanks, guys."

WAVE 3 News will have team coverage from UofL throughout Wednesday afternoon and evening.
