Here Are 5 Potential Replacements For Rick Pitino As Louisville's Head Coach

If true, that would put Pitino in the middle of the investigation as a known party to investigators. Pitino's lawyers have also denied allegations.

Investigators said the coaches have "enormous influence" over their players and how they select their agents and other advisers when they leave college and enter the National Basketball Association.

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. Gatto, as well as two other defendants affiliated with the athletic wear company were nabbed in the probe.

The recruit in question is believed to be five-star freshman Brian Bowen, according to CBS Sports. I saw him against another great player from Indiana.

"All of those charged today contributed to a pay-to-play culture that has no business in college basketball", Bill Sweeney, assistant director in charge of the FBI's NY division, said.

Later in the complaint, someone with a phone number used by "Coach-2" is said to have had two conversations with Gatto "on or about May 27" and then another conversation on June 1.




Rick Pitino, the highest paid coach in college basketball, was sacked by Louisville on Wednesday, Sports Illustrated reports.

Both the USA attorney's office in NY and the Federal Bureau of Investigation hinted Tuesday that the corruption was much more widespread than the charges they had announced.

"We're not going to tolerate what we've learned about", said Postel, who acknowledged he was more angry than embarrassed, at the news conference. "They've given us enough information that we can make that determination".

Pitino, 65, was named the John Wooden National Coach of the Year at Providence in 1987 and was inducted into the Nasimith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. I said, 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' They had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotel, pay for their meals. "But it's not our position to do that, because they are their documents".

Earlier today, ESPN reported that Pitino told his staff he was expecting to lose his job prior to meeting with Louisville interim president Greg Postel this morning.

Rick Pitino survived some of the most tasteless of scandals during his tenure as coach of the Louisville men's basketball team, first a 2009 extortion attempt during which he admitted to having sexual relations with the wife of his team's equipment manager!
