LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The University of Louisville board of trustees has unanimously endorsed a resolution supporting university President James Ramsey but is asking the school’s $1.1 billion foundation to review its organizational structure.

WDRB-TV (https://bit.ly/1VAlsYh ) reports the board’s new chairman, Larry Benz, said the board wanted to show unity in support of Ramsey and put to rest any talk of doing away with the university’s separately managed foundation.

Controversy erupted earlier this year when the foundation’s multimillion-dollar pay packages for Ramsey and other administrators first came to light.

Benz, the president and CEO of Confluent Health, succeeds Robert Hughes, a Murray physician.

Benz was unanimously approved Thursday to serve in 2015-16 along with Union County Attorney Brucie Moore as vice chairwoman, Steve Campbell as treasurer and Doug Hall as secretary.
