Louisville athletic board votes to fire Rick Pitino with 'just cause' for role in scandal


The University of Louisville fired basketball coach Rick Pitino on Monday, nearly three weeks after the school was implicated in a national bribery scandal. Pitino, who had been head men's coach since 2001 and led the team to a national championship in 2013, fought to keep his job, submitting a 53-page defense packet to the board of the university's Athletic Association.
