Dick Vitale has been one of Rick Pitino’s biggest supporters for a long time, but even he saw the writing on the wall last night.
Dickie V called into Bob Valvano’s show on ESPN 680 in Louisville this afternoon and said he called Pitino last night and left him a voicemail encouraging him to resign. Per Andy Sweeney, Vitale said he’s spoken to a person close to the scandal who believes that since it broke, someone flipped and more schools will be named. After the call, Dickie V got on the Twitter and said the same thing:
Just had a call that already there is some flipping going on by some arrested yesterday by @FBI / this is getting uglier = SLEAZE !
