The University Of Louisville has placed men's head basketball coach Rick Pitino on unpaid administrative leave, with his employment to be reviewed. The school's interim president, Gregory Postel, called it "a dark day" for the university.
The move comes after Pitino's program was implicated in a wide-ranging federal fraud investigation that was unveiled on Tuesday. The FBI says it caught coaches, Adidas employees and players in a network of bribes.
Postel said Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich is being placed on paid administrative leave.
