Rick Pitino has found himself at the center of a massive college basketball fraud scandal, and it would appear prosecutors are arguing that the Louisville head coach is guilty by more than just association. "In sum, Coach Pitino has done nothing wrong and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise".
Immediately after Rick Pitino was placed on leave, David Padgett emerged as the leading candidate for the Louisville job.
The younger Pitino said he didn't know about any of the allegations against Louisville, where he coached for three seasons from 2007-09 and 2011-12. All have either been suspended or placed on administrative leave.
Further, according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, Christian Dawkins, a former financial manager who was involved in a number of the dealings with adidas executives and coaches, contacted Pitino in regards to the adidas payments to a recruit.

According to Louisville TV personality Terry Meiners, Pitino's lawyer Steve Pence promises that the school "won't fire Pitino without a bare-knuckle fight".
"We're unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more", Adidas said in a statement in regards to Gatto's arrest.
Days after one of their players was linked to an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into corruption in college basketball, Orlando-based travel basketball team 1 Family issued a statement on Thursday saying highly touted recruit Nassir Little did not ask for and wasn't offered money during Little's recruitment process.
"The allegations in a criminal investigation being conducted by the United States Attorney's office and the Federal Bureau of Investigations are troubling to all of us", University interim president Greg Postel said.
