adidas high top trainers Jurich placed on leave at Louisville
LOUISVILLE Louisville has placed coach Rick Pitino and athletic director Tom Jurich on administrative leave amid a federal bribery investigation.
Jurich is on paid leave, while Pitino is on unpaid leave. The coach’s attorney,
Steve Spence, told the Courier Journal Wednesday that Louisville has “effectively fired” Pitino.
Pitino’s exit comes after the school acknowledged on Tuesday that the men’s program is part of a federal investigation into alleged bribery of recruits. The 65 year old coach was not named in the indictment that resulted in the arrest of 10 people including four assistant coaches at other schools and an Adidas executive.
It is the latest black eye for the Cardinals program. Pitino and Louisville are in the middle of appealing NCAA sanctions following an embarrassing sex scandal.
President Donald J. Trump signed into law tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from several countries. The tariff for steel is 25 percent and 10 percent for aluminum. Trump believes the move will help domestic steel and aluminum producers.
Critics of the move,
including Republican leaders like Paul Ryan, fear a trade war could be looming. The European Union has already threatened new tariffs on American exports if Trump’s proposal becomes reality. Trump says trade wars are “good,
and easy to win.”
