Richard Pitino: 'It's been a tough week for our family'

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) During Richard Pitino's most difficult days as coach at Minnesota, when the Gophers were losing at a historic rate two years ago, his father Rick would come in from Louisville to give the team a pep talk and sit behind his son at a game in a show of support.

Now it's Rick that needs the help.

Richard Pitino said on Friday that "it's been a tough week for our family." Rick Pitino was placed on administrative leave as the result of a federal bribery investigation that alleges money was funneled from Adidas, which sponsors Louisville, to the family of a prized recruit to get him to choose the Cardinals.
