UofL BASKETBALL | Legal Experts Weigh In On Louisville Bribery Scandal

09/28/2017 03:19 PM

In the wake of an FBI investigation in to college basketball and bribery by agents, financial advisers and shoe companies- the University of Louisville is left without a men’s basketball head coach (and possibly staff), and an athletic director the week that college basketball practices begin.

The fans are left with plenty of questions- many about what is next.

As Rick Pitino has issued multiple statements through his representation alluding at a legal battle and the university itself already meeting about potential litigation surrounding the audit, Sports Night brought legal experts on to help break down the next steps for Pitino and Louisville.

Adrienne Lawrence, a former ESPN anchor, is a legal analyst and practiced law for eight years before her broadcast career.

Jim Ellis is a Louisville-based attorney and has been in the business over 20 years. Ellis is also a former Louisville basketball player and has represented coaches as an agent in the past.

No charges have been brought forth with anyone associated with the University of Louisville at this time.
