College Sports Scandal on Eastern Standard

Oct 16, 2017

  Revelations that the University of Louisville basketball program is being  investigated as part of a federal corruption probe have shaken up college sports and caused the firing of UofL’s basketball coach.

On this week’s show, we’ll do our best to find out what’s going on as we discuss the “Pay-to-Play Scandal in College Sports.”

The board that oversees athletics at the University of Louisville has voted unanimously Monday to fire men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino.
