Quote: "On June 28, 2023, the University of Kentucky paid head swimming and diving coach Lars Jorgensen $75,000 to go away quietly."

"a review of dozens of internal documents obtained by the Lexington Herald-Leader under Kentucky’s Open Records Act shows that, had he stayed, he potentially faced the public humiliation of getting fired.

By the time Barnhart opened the back door for him, Jorgensen was the focus of misconduct complaints from students and staffers and two investigations at UK, one for alleged sexual abuse of women in the swim program"
