Louisville Releases Statement Regarding Escort Allegations

The University of Louisville has released a statement about the allegations of a former men's basketball staffer hiring escorts for players and recruits. 

Here is the statement via Pat Forde of Yahoo! Sports:

"The University of Louisville first learned of these allegations when the Indianapolis Business Journal contacted the University’s sports information department seeking comment in late August," the school said in a released statement. "... The University, on its own initiative, notified the NCAA Enforcement Staff regarding this matter and has been in regular communication with them."
In the book’s final chapter, it quotes a statement it says it received from the university in response to a request for comment on the allegation: "The University of Louisville has retained an outside expert to investigate allegations evidently contained in a book that IBJ Book Publishing, LLC has been asked to publish. The outside expert is aggressively reviewing this situation in full cooperation with relevant authorities, including the NCAA. The university notes that the publisher has provided sparse detail to date and repeats its request for additional detail in order to further the thoroughness of the investigation. If the investigation uncovers any misconduct by University employees, the university will deal with it swiftly and severely."
