Rick Pitino’s Future At Louisville Should Very Much Be In Doubt
Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino should be very concerned about his future with the program.
The Cardinals are being accused of funneling a recruit $100,000 in return for his commitment. This comes on the back of Louisville basketball players and recruits being provided strippers. Not the greatest look for Pitino.
In fact, this might be enough to end his coaching career.
From what I was just told only reason Rick Pitino is still the UofL head coach is because AD Tom Jurich is out of town. Thats changing soon.

And I’m sure Pitino knew nothing. https://t.co/gcVhOhQCj6

Man, how does this shady stuff keep happening to Rick Pitino without his knowledge??!?

Doesn’t a little part of you hope Rick Pitino survives this just to see what he does that he acts “shocked” by next?

I enjoy everything that surrounds Pitino and all the stories connected to him. I’m sure not all of them are true, but I’d like to believe most of them are.
However, that’s not the right way to run a college basketball program. You can’t routinely deny knowledge of everything going on and then expect to get away with it forever. I have no idea if the allegations are true or not. Pitino will be fired if they are, and he might be even if they can’t tie enough evidence to him directly.
It’s a wild time in college basketball right now. I can’t wait to see how this saga ends.
