Additionally, the two sides agreed to a new seven-year deal in April of 2016; does the language in that revamped contract impact this situation at all? "I don't know what the solution is, but it's really really challenging for a lot of different variables". I love this University, the Louisville community and all of our fans. In fact, Rick Pitino was hit with a five-game suspension back in June in connection to the program's escort scandal. Pitino has been placed on unpaid leave. His future employment will also be reviewed in October.

David Grissom, chairman of the school's board of trustees, said the board was unanimous in supporting the moves. ESPN reported earlier that Pitino told staff members he expected to lose his job.

According to a report from ESPN "SportsCenter" anchor Michael Eaves, Louisville plans to fire Pitino a day after the university was linked to college basketball's massive corruption scandal. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Sports.

The university will announce an interim head coach and athletics director within the next 48 hours.

When success comes with scandal, people often pay more attention to the success. "Doing nothing would be a tacit endorsement of unethical behaviour". Meanwhile the school's athletics director, Tom Jurich, has been fired. Jurich came to Louisville in 2007 and has presided over some of the most successful years for the athletic department, including a move to the ACC.

"But it's, I think for somebody that's been around college basketball for a long, long time, it's just kind of disappointing in a lot of ways".
