Rick Pitino made his first public statement without a lawyer on Friday, telling Louisville television and radio host Terry Meiners that this week has been "so tough." Pitino was implicated in an FBI investigation into college basketball recruiting and placed on unpaid administrative leave on Wednesday by the University of Louisville, which means he was "effectively fired," according to his attorney. The 65-year-coach is believed to be in Florida.
