IU releases statement regarding Leary matter

  • 02/05/2010 4:15 pm in

UPDATE (10:05 a.m.): The Hoosier Scoop has the mugshot and probable cause affidavit. Meanwhile, Rebecca S. Green of the Ft. Wayne Journal-Gazette reports that Leary was transported to Allen County and later released on $60,000 bond Friday evening. He’s due in court Tuesday.

UPDATE (5:49 p.m.): Bob Agramonte, vice president at Learfield Sports, just left a voicemail on my cell phone saying that the statement released by IU also reflects Learfield’s current stance on the matter, and that they have “no further comment at this time on the Todd Leary situation.”

Per J.D. Campbell, assistant athletic director for media relations and head of men’s basketball media relations:

“Indiana University Athletics and Learfield Sports, the Hoosiers’ multimedia rights holder which oversees the Indiana University Radio Network, recognize the recent events involving color analyst Todd Leary. Clearly, both parties are concerned for Todd and his family as he deals with this matter. We will continue to move forward with the current broadcast team of Don Fischer and Joe Smith calling IU basketball games through the remainder of the season.”

The statement also goes on to say that any future inquiries should be directed to Learfield Sports. At this point, however, what that future holds is unclear. Again, we’ll have more for you as this story develops.
