Back in November, Rick Pitino filed a lawsuit against UofL worth roughly $35 million for breach of contract following his termination from the school. Tonight,  Jason Riley of WDRB has reported the University of Louisville has officially filed a lawsuit against Rick Pitino, asking for monetary damages from NCAA vacation of wins, ticket sales, donations, and bonuses. https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/941088582198091776 UofL claims Pitino admitted wrongdoing in his epic ESPN interview with Jay Bilas, where he took "full responsibility" for his hiring decisions. They also argue Pitino knew about Brian Bowen's mother living in the Galt House and did not report the potential violation to compliance staff. https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/941090114155008001 https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/941090775194103809 After UofL had their hearing today with the NCAA, it's obvious things did not go well at all and the school will look to earn back every cent lost when sanctions officially hit in January. This situation just got a whole lot uglier.. [mobile_ad]
