LOUISVILLE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino must sit out five conference games next season in the wake of a sex scandal that rocked the Cardinals program two years ago.
Pitino’s suspension will be in effect during the team’s first five ACC games next year, according to ESPN.
Syracuse University coach Jim Boeheim served a nine-game suspension during the 2016-2017 campaign as part of the school’s penalty for NCAA infractions.
The cables sports network reports that the NCAA says Pitino violated rules regarding his coaching responsibilities during the scandal.
The scandal erupted after allegations that former assistant Andre McGee hired strippers to entertain players and recruits.
Louisville be on probation for four years, and the program will be subjected to recruiting restrictions and a reduced number of scholarships.
ESPN says the program’s 2013 national title may also be at risk.
