Rick Pitino out at Louisville as expected amid federal probe

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Rick Pitino has been able to roam the sidelines as Louisville's iconic men's basketball coach, even defiantly at times, holding onto his job amid a series of highly embarrassing missteps off the court.

Things looked bleak this time around, with a seemingly inevitable departure looming in the weeks since the latest scandal became public. But even after the school was linked to a federal bribery investigation , no one completely counted Pitino out. Not until Monday.
