CORAL GABLES — An attorney for former University of Miami football sports information director Rick Korch said his client is innocent after child pornography was found on his office computer about a month ago.

“Rick Korch was terminated at the University of Miami due to inappropriate pornography on his work computer,” attorney William Barzee said in a statement Wednesday.

“However, he is innocent of any criminal wrongdoing and looks forward to having the opportunity to clear his name in the appropriate forum at the appropriate time. This is a private matter and we wish it to remain so.”

Korch, 52, is under criminal investigation after a technician found child pornography on his office computer. Evidence against him was outlined in a search warrant filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. He hasn’t been charged.

Korch’s university biography said he’s married and has four children. Korch, 52, didn’t return a message on his cell phone.

University officials and Coral Gables police declined to comment.
