More fallout from U of L basketball in FBI investigation

The latest news could spell the end of Rick Pitino at Louisville

He treated me great.

Rick Pitino is gone at Louisville. The school is appealing that decision.

That's not to say that coaches, recruiters and boosters would put away their wallets if schools officially paid players. Nor did an unprecedented scandal involving escorts entertaining Louisville players and recruits in dorm-room parties sporadically from 2010 to 2014. They know everything important about their teams. You wonder why bad things happen to good people. "I don't care what anybody says". "It just really upsets me". But a lawyer for Pitino told the Louisville Courier-Journal that the coach is "effectively fired".

"I doubt there's a player who ever played for him who's happy about this", Mills said.

"I'll remember the Rick Pitino I had at Kentucky", he said. The universities involved not only have to deal with an ongoing investigation with the FBI, but all are going to face severe penalties from the NCAA, which for some could potentially be the new version of the death penalty. No television appearances and no post-season play until the 1991-92 season.

Pitino, according to ESPN and Yahoo Sports, said in a statement he was not aware of the fraud and corruption charges that brought the FBI to the campus as part of a national probe launched by the United States Department of Justice. Powell said McGee paid her $10,000 for 22 shows with most occurring in the team's Billy Minardi Hall dormitory named for Pitino's brother-in-law, who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York.

The charges come after a two-year investigation into criminal influence in NCAA basketball. The NCAA has recommended the program vacate wins during this period, which could cost the program its 2013 title.

Taylor said Jurich was asked to fire Pitino and refused and then both were fired.

"These allegations come as a complete shock to me". He is also the host of the College Hoops Today Podcast via Compass Media Networks, which is available via iTunes.

Let us focus on the death penalty to a program for a moment.

Feldhaus remembered Pitino as a masterful game coach. He and his wife Joanne were reportedly looking to downsize. He's working on a book and wanted his old coach to contribute. And he loves his job. The school declared itself ineligible for postseason play in 2016, and the N.C.A.A. suspended Pitino for the first five games of the coming season.

For Louisville's administration, this was ultimately the tipping point.

Mills recalled this process being a test of fire.

"He coached me like I was an All-American", Mills said. There was never enough to directly implicate him, but enough to make you roll your eyes.

So while the ACC ponders its festering Louisville problem - the conference recidivism champions since joining the league - the rest of college basketball will be pondering just where the FBI's hammer will fall next. That's what 'The Unforgettables' were. That seems to be a consensus among his former players.
