Rick Pitino Is Suing Louisville For $38.7 Million

Rick Pitino is not going to go away without a fight. The former Louisville head coach is now suing his former employer for a whopping $38.7 million.

Louisville fired the 65-year-old coach on October 16 a few weeks after it placed him on leave following a federal bribery probe involving college basketball. Pitino has claimed he had no knowledge of payments to a recruit’s family.

Pitino’s lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court on Thursday seeks damages of $4.307 million yearly through 2026. It claims the school did not give him 10 days advance notice before it “effectively fired” him.

This could get really ugly for both parties.
