Rick Pitino no comments media regarding Louisville status — WATCH”

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino and school's athletic director have been effectively fired in the wake of a corruption and fraud scandal. That is the same number of NBA draft selections as Maryland and Memphis had during the same period, fewer than that of Florida State and Oregon (12 each), and well behind that of Louisville's in-state rival Kentucky (35). In 2015, he was not fired despite a scandal in which a former Louisville staffer arranged for strippers and prostitutes to have liaisons with players and recruits in the team's dormitory. "These boys come to school and are not supposed to be paid", said UK fan Janet Harris.

Postel said an interim head men's basketball coach and interim athletic director could both be appointed within 48 hours.

His daughter, Haley Jurich, was hired by Adidas in March, as local news outlet WDRB.com first reported on Wednesday. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Sports.

Tom Jurich, the athletic director, and Pitino met with the university's interim president, Greg Postel, on Wednesday morning.

The school will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. ET, Postel said. The charges are brought after three years of investigation into the matter by the FBI.

Chuck Person, an assistant coach at Auburn University accused of accepting a $50,000 bribe, was suspended by the university.

Postel stressed that the university will cooperate fully with law enforcement and NCAA officials. Their future at the university "will be addressed at a later date".

The meeting occurred amid reports that Pitino was expected to lose his job as a result of a FBI inquiry into college basketball recruiting that resulted in the arrests of 10 individuals earlier this week, including four assistant college basketball coaches.

The investigation claims an Adidas executive conspired to pay $100,000 to the family of a top recruit to convince the player to commit to Louisville and to represent Adidas when he turned pro.
