Both men likely will be fired.
"I'm more angry than embarrassed", Postel said.
One of the most successful college basketball coaches in history, Pitino is 416-143 in 16 seasons as Louisville head coach and is in the Naismith Hall of Fame with 770 career victories. Since no charges involving Louisville have been filed, Postel said, Pitino and Jurich have not yet been dismissed outright.
"We will cooperate fully with any law enforcement or NCAA investigation into the matter". He confirmed he gave her $3,000 for "counseling and medical needs" but was later told the money was used for an abortion.
The coaches accused include Lamont Evans, an assistant at Oklahoma State University, Emanuel Richardson, an assistant for the Arizona Wildcats, Chuck Person, associate head coach at Auburn University, and Tony Bland, associate head coach of the University of Southern California. He currently lives in Manhattan.
In June, Pitino received a five-game suspension from the NCAA for a "failure to monitor" as part of the program's escort scandal, which came to light in a 2015 book by Katina Powell.

Cheating will always be with us.

One secretly recorded meeting - between the coach, two defendants, an undercover agent and a cooperating witness - took place in a Las Vegas hotel room.

April 8, 2013: After entering the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed, the Cardinals defeat the University of Michigan to capture the school's third NCAA men's basketball championship. He had committed to the Cardinals in February after also considering Florida and others.
"It's a grinding process and I want my son to enjoy his senior season with out the pressure".
When discussing Bowen's surprise commitment this summer, when Bowen went away from an expected commitment to Michigan State or DePaul, Pitino said Louisville had good fortune. Adidas is just not like that. "They had so much tragedy in their lives". Letting players go to the NBA out of high school would shrink it even more. Adidas has never one time directed a player my way. Epps plans to send a text "and tell him I still support him".
Neither Pitino nor Jurich attended the news conference.
"I was frankly stunned.again", Reed said.
Can't get enough of Campus Sports? I just don't know.
