Under heat from multiple media outlets Richard Pitino tweeted out an email exchange confirming he had contact with Russian recruiting services while an assistant coach at the University of Louisville. The emails show an interaction that showed Richard Pitino was attempting to bring in players to benefit his father’s NCAA title campaign.
The emails detail a meeting between the younger Pitino and a Russian recruiting service that promised “detailed scouting information on foreign players that will help us in your cause to defeat the University of Kentucky.”
The NCAA intelligence committee said it doesn’t care about this information and wishes Richard would stop sending them unsolicited emails
