Legendary college basketball coach Rick Pitino fired amid scandal

Neither Pitino nor Jurich can be fired summarily, according to their contracts, but Postel said their continued employment would be reviewed by the university board of trustees.

Postel said that he hoped to name an interim athletic director and interim men's basketball coach in the next 48 hours, and decisions regarding the unnamed UofL coaches in the indictment would be made by this interim athletic director.

The others included the Adidas-sponsored head of Central Florida Basketball Academy - one of the country's leading programs for pre-college players - a clothier who makes suits for some of the country's leading athletes and financial advisors to players. The coach's attorney, Steve Spence, told the Courier-Journal Wednesday that Louisville has "effectively fired" Pitino. On the flip side, Pitino is the second-winningest coach in program history and helped navigate the school to where they are today.

"Coach Pitino has done nothing wrong and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise. The rush to judgment is regrettable". The Board of Trustees will discuss Jurich's fate on or before its October 18 meeting.

Pitino received his suspension accordingly and the program was hit with scholarship sanctions and record vacations, but he refused to take responsibility for it and claimed his own innocence.

The fallout continues from the FBI investigation into the world of collegiate basketball, where not only have four assistant coaches been arrested for their roles in the scandal, now a head coach has potentially lost his job. Jurich, who has been Louisville's athletics director for almost 20 years, is also expected to be let go by the school. Former Cardinals assistant coach Andre McGee admitted to being part of the scandal.

Jim Gatto is the Adidas (Company-1) basketball executive named as a defendant in the complaint.

The university has sent out a release already to announce the moves.

At a news conference detailing the charges Tuesday afternoon, federal authorities said the FBI has been investigating the criminal influence of money on NCAA coaches and players since 2015.

In Pitino's 16 years at Louisville, the coach has been implicated in a number of scandals.

"The 65-year-old was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013". Pitino has been placed on unpaid leave.
