Rick Pitino issues statement maintaining innocence after firing

Rick Pitino

Louisville coach Rick Pitino is maintaining his innocence even after being placed on administrative leave by the university.

Louisville was implicated in the NCAA bribery scandal that has rocked the sport, with the investigation alleging that an Adidas executive paid top recruit Brian Bowen $100,000 to commit to the Cardinals. Pitino maintained in a statement that “a few bad actors” were involved, and he stood by that in a statement released Wednesday.

It gets harder and harder to believe Pitino, especially given how wide-ranging the scandal seems to be. Couple that with the fact that the program was hit hard by another scandal last year and the coach simply had to go.
