Jurich is placed on paid administrative leave. The married Pitino admitted to having sex with the woman in a closed Louisville restaurant in 2003. A press conference has been scheduled for this afternoon.

Among the six others charged were managers, financial advisers and the director of global sports marketing at Adidas. He says fans and supporters deserve better.

It's not clear as the federal probe - which began in 2015 - appears to be very much in its early stages. Postel added that "any violations will not be tolerated".

The school cannot just bring in another coach of his stature.

Rick Pitino & Tom Jurich were able to survive a previous scandal involving Katina Powell & Andre McGee which put the program on probabtion.

It's not too hard to connect the dots between the indictments filed today and the Louisville Cardinals.

Yesterday it was revealed recruit Bryan Bowen, who is set to be a freshman on this year's team, allegedly received a $100,000 payment from an Adidas executive.

Postel said an interim athletic director and men's basketball coach will be named within 48 hours. His leave is effective immediately with pay.

"Pence promises that [the University of Louisville] 'won't fire Pitino without a bare-knuckle fight, '" Terry Meiners, a Louisville TV and radio personality, posted on his blog. Sypher was found guilty of extortion and lying to federal agents in 2010. I think the values and things that he taught me - I haven't spoken to him.

ESPN is reporting that Jurich and Pitino met with Louisville interim president Greg Postel Wednesday morning.

A short time later, Pitino returned to the KFC Yum! He said little. Tried keep me out of bldg.

Asked if the investigation would cause a change in how Keatts monitors recruits and how they interact with adidas, Keatts declined to comment.

Jurich has been placed on paid leave until the next meeting of the University of Louisville Board of Trustees. While no Louisville coach was indicted on Tuesday, the school and a recruit were clearly described in the investigation.

"I believe in the University of Louisville".

"We shouldn't have a rush to judgment, but a rush to judgment doesn't mean you take forever".

The highlight was the team's 2013 NCAA Championship - a six-point victory over Michigan.
