A leading supporter of former University of Louisville President James Ramsey is resigning his seat on the school's foundation board.

The Courier-Journal reports that Dr. Bob Hughes sent a copy of his resignation letter to the newspaper on Tuesday.

Hughes, a physician who practices in Murray, remains on the school's board of trustees.

He unsuccessfully fought to retain Ramsey as president of the university and foundation. Ramsey was forced to resign from both positions.

Smith also served as former UofL president James Ramsey's chief of staff. The 69-year-old Smith retired as the president's chief of staff earlier this month but had wanted to stay on through the end of the year at the foundation to complete some projects.
