The University of Louisville has ten new trustees. Governor Matt Bevin disbanded the previous board less than two weeks ago amid turmoil over embattled president James Ramsey.

Bevin said Wednesday the new board represents "a new day."

Appointees include Papa John’s pizza founder John Schnatter and Ulysses "Junior" Bridgeman, a Louisville businessman and former UofL basketball standout.

Attorney General Andy Beshear is challenging Bevin’s decision to disband the former board in court.
