Louisville radio host Paul Miles later tweeted that Pitino had responded to the reports, calling them "pure speculation - and false".

Two of those schools - Arizona and Miami - have been implicated in an ongoing FBI investigation into bribery and corruption in college basketball.

Ten people have been arrested in the corruption case, including four college assistant coaches and an Adidas executive.

UofL interim President Greg Postel announced this morning that an interim men's head basketball coach will be named late Friday afternoon. "It is vital for this university to strictly adhere to NCAA rules and, of course, federal law. We're unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more". Louisville was hit with strong sanctions and the program h ad to vacate wins that included the 2013 national championship. "I think Pitino's done a lot of good things for our team, but it may all end up working out for our good, maybe we'll get a better coach out of it, I don't know, it just depends", says Breckenridge. "If true, I agree with the U.S. Attorneys Office that these third-party schemes, initiated by a few bad actors, operated to commit a fraud on the impacted universities and their basketball programs, including the University of Louisville".

The Reno, Nevada native filled in for Pitino on Inside the Cards on WAVE 3 News in December of 2016.
