Louisville puts Pitino, AD Jurich on leave amid scandal

Rick Pitino NBA Return? Not Likely Says Woj

And if Pitino can be taken down, no college basketball coach is untouchable.

"Player-11" has not been identified, but is reportedly a class of 2019 recruit. At a third, a coaching assistant is said to have sought bribes from people seeking access to his players.

Jurich was placed on paid administrative leave until a university Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for October 16, where it is likely he will be fired.

Coach Bruce Pearl, who is no stranger to NCAA trouble, is not named in the report.

Pitino and his program already were not in the good graces of the NCAA. Among them, Oklahoma State associate head coach Lamont Evans, who was hired in April 2016 by now first-year IL coach Brad Underwood. Evans has been fired by Oklahoma State.

Accepting bribes would be against their regulations.

Also according to the FBI, Gatto's involvement was based around paying high school players and their families to push them towards Adidas schools, and then sign with the company later down the road.

In response to a question about Auburn University's offer to refund men's basketball season tickets over one of its coach's alleged role in the corruption case, Postel said Louisville had not considered that.

The following two tabs change content below.

Merl Code, recently left Nike for Adidas: A right-hand man for Gatto involved in many of these exchanges, according to the complaint.

Christian Dawkins, a former agent for ASM Sports who's been charged, also told witness Marty Blazer that he helped to facilitate the Bowen deal "at the request of a coach", records show. "It will be better for you to call us than for us to call you".

Schlabach reports another person involved in the investigation, Jonathan Brad Augustine, president of The League Initiative and program director of adidas-sponsored 1 Family AAU program, potentially referenced Pitino as someone having significant influence at adidas.

Gatto allegedly funneled $100,000 of Adidas' money to the family of Player-10, believed to be Louisville freshman Brian Bowen, for the talented prospect's commitment to the Cardinals. "We have full time compliance staff that work on this issue constantly, educating and working with the NCAA and other entities to make sure that these types of situations do not happen in Nebraska".
