The FBI Just Blew Up the College Basketball- AAU Sneaker Industry Fraud Corruption Bribery

Rick Pitino is one of the best head coaches in college basketball history, and there's no denying it.

Louisville hired Jurich in October 1997.

Pitino has been placed on indefinite unpaid administrative leave, Louisville Interim President Greg Postel announced during a press conference on Wednesday.

"The picture painted by the charges brought today is not a pretty one, " said Joon Kim, acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY. He also admitted in 2009 to an extramarital affair that resulted in pregnancy. They said for the schemes to succeed, it was necessary to lie to the schools by falsely certifying that they were unaware of any rules violations.

Federal prosecutors in NY announced Tuesday morning that 10 indictments were handed down following a nationwide FBI corruption sting of NCAA basketball programs, in which agents and a top Adidas executives were accused of giving bribes to assistant coaches and recruits in order to steer players to different schools or companies.

To their credit, the University of Louisville did come out yesterday (9/26) to say they had been under investigation by the NCAA and the FBI. "Player-10" is believed to be Louisville freshman Brian Bowen.

The NCAA is investigating accusations that former Louisville assistant coach Andre McGee arranged escorts for players and recruits under Pitino's watch. I said, 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' They had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotel, pay for their meals. As an aside, everything around Little seems to be dealing with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, so it remains as to whether we'll see him ever play in college or not.

The 65-year-old has been the coach at Louisville for 16 seasons and ranks third on the school's all-time win list. WHAS radio personality Terry Meiners reported late Tuesday that Pence signaled Pitino would not be fired without a "bare-knuckle fight".

Pitino said in a statement on Tuesday that he was shocked by the allegations, which also ensnared several other major men's basketball programs.

Pitino has compiled a 770-269 record in a college coaching career that featured stops at Boston University, Providence, Kentucky and Louisville.

In 2010, Karen Sypher was found guilty for extorting Pitino.

Jurich, 61, is among the more long-tenured and successful athletic directors in the country. He coached the team to a national title in 2013, however, the championship may be vacated due to ineligible recruits on the team at that time.
