Assistant University of Louisville football coach Cortney Braswell was put on paid leave July 2. This came the week after Braswell was arrested on fugitive charges in Louisville.

It was announced on Aug. 21 that Braswell had these theft charges dropped.

U of L football spokesman Rocco Gasparro told the Courier Journal that Braswell would be put on paid leave pending further investigation.

The charges made against Braswell dealt with a former high school he coached at in Chattanooga, Tenn. It was reported that Braswell allegedly kept over $2,000 in payments he received from semi-professional football teams that paid to use Chattanooga Central’s field.

Braswell was transferred to the Hamilton County Jail in Chattanooga after his arrest in Louisville.

Louisville football head coach Scott Satterfield said last week that he was aware of the situation regarding Braswell.

Braswell was hired this January as the quality control coach for the U of L football team.
