Former Louisville coach Rick Pitino received a grand jury subpoena to produce phone records and other documents related to the FBI's investigation into corruption in college basketball, his attorney told ESPN on Wednesday. Pitino's attorney, Steve Pence, said the Basketball Hall of Fame coach received a grand jury subpoena from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York earlier this month. The subpoena requires Pitino to turn over all documents and communications -- including emails, text messages, cellphone records, social media and computer records from Jan. 1, 2014, to the present -- related to "actual or potential NCAA rules violations" by players or coaches. "It's evidence that he's not a target," Pence said. "When the FBI thinks someone is a target, they would not come in and serve them with a subpoena. They would serve them with a warrant and seize it right then. Otherwise, they would be giving them 30 days to destroy the evidence." Pitino, who was fired as Louisville's coach on Monday, is the second head coach to acknowledge receiving a grand jury subpoena as part of the investigation. Miami coach Jim Larranaga's attorney told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday that Larranaga had received a subpoena and was cooperating.
