NCAA charges coach Rick Pitino with failure to monitor in escort case
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The NCAA is accusing Louisville of four violations stemming from its investigation of allegations that a former men’s basketball staffer hired escorts and strippers for sex parties with Cardinals recruits and players.
The governing body’s report was released Thursday.
The letter does not mention a lack of institutional control – considered the most serious violation – but says coach Rick Pitino failed to monitor staffer Andre McGee.
The NCAA’s letter is the first step in a process that could extend into next spring according to the timetable of responses and hearings on the allegations.
Louisville has 90 days to respond.
