Rick Pitino selling Louisville home amid latest scandal
Rick Pitino is on the verge of losing his job at Louisville, and it appears the longtime coach has already begun the process of skipping town.
According to the Courier-Jounral, Pitino has put his East Louisville home on the market. The 5,100-square-foot house does not have a price attached to it for the public to see, but it was assessed at just over $1 million for tax purposes four years ago. The home is located in the Mockingbird Gardens Estates neighborhood, which is one of the most exclusive areas of Louisville.
As the Lexington Herald-Leader notes, Pitino also owns two homes in Florida which are valued at $9 million and $3.4 million.
Pitino was placed on administrative leave after Louisville was one of the schools named in an FBI fraud investigation last month. A top executive at Adidas is accused of helping to funnel money to top recruits in exchange for their commitments to Adidas-sponsored programs. Pitino has maintained that he had no idea what was going on.
