As Rick Pitino continues to deny any involvement, more and more people are coming forward to say he is Coach-2 in the FBI’s indictment.
The latest to report Pitino is indeed Coach-2 is Louisville’s own Courier-Journal, which confirmed through a source in law enforcement that Pitino is the one.

Despite the many reports, Pitino maintains his innocence. His lawyer has released several statements saying Pitino was unaware of any of the allegations, and Dick Vitale tweeted that Pitino “VEHEMENTLY denied” any involvement when they spoke earlier today.
Louisville fans should be insulted by Rick Pitino’s arrogance right now. Does he think they’re all stupid???
