Pitino has lead louisville, and Kentucky to NCAA championships, coached the New York Knicks, and Boston Celtics. Former agent of ASM sports recruited 5 star wing, Brian Bowen by sending his family $100,000 through Adidas. This was done because Pitino requested it.

The FBI secretly recorded an undercover agent and Jonathan Augustine who is the director of an AAU program, discuss how to pay the Bowen family. Because the two workers at Adidas had trouble getting the money, they funneled money through his Adidas sponsored AAU program.

On June 3rd Brian Bowen officially signed with Louisville in return he would receive $100,000 from Adidas.

The meeting to see what will happen with Pitino is scheduled for October 19th. According to his contract, he must be given a ten day notice before he can be fired.
