Louisville fires Pitino 'with just cause'

In a separate affidavit, Pitino accused the U of L athletic board of "rushing to judgment, condemning me for actions that the NCAA is only beginning to investigate".

The University of Louisville board officially fired head basketball coach Rick Pitino with "just cause" Monday, acknowledging the school is under federal investigation for corruption.

On Oct. 2, the athletic association board, which is composed of trustees, faculty members, students and administrators, voted to begin the process of terminating Pitino's contract for cause.

Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix will arrive later next year, but first comes the X-Men series' first horror offering. The news of a coming trailer was first revealed by " New Mutants " director, Josh Boone , himself.

Coach Pitino was on unpaid administrative leave leading up to Monday's vote. While Pitino himself did not attend the meeting, his attorneys submitted an affidavit on his behalf, according to ESPN.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the board met in executive session for almost five hours on Monday before announcing its decision.

Pitino was not named in court complaints in the federal probe, but interim school president Greg Postel said in a disciplinary letter that the allegations violated his contract.
