Rick Pitino has spoken, and his response is exactly what’d you expect. Through his lawyer, Pitino released this statement in response to Louisville’s alleged involvement in the bribery scandal rocking college basketball:
No reference to 9-11? Come on, Rick.
An update from our pal Joe Sonka:
Just spoke with Pitino's attorney. He says there would be no reason for him to resign, as he's not accused of any wrongdoing by Feds today.

And Jason Riley:
As for any possibility of Rick Pitino being fired, Pence said he had heard nothing and, "That would be fairly reckless of the university."

So, Pitino won’t go willingly. Does UofL have the cajones to fire him?
Maybe we’ll find out in the morning.
