The NCAA has found that the former University of Louisville director of basketball, Andre McGee, acted unethically by arranging for women to perform stripteases and sexual acts for student-athletes and others. The ruling also found that Louisville’s head coach Rick Pitino violated his responsibility by failing to monitor the former director’s activities. The NCAA has penalized the university with a four-year probation, a five game suspension for the head coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference 2017-18 season, and will vacate the basketball records in which student-athletes who were ineligible competed between December 2010 to July 2014. Additionally, the men’s basketball program will have reductions to scholarships and recruiting restrictions, as well as return money from revenue shared for its appearances at Men’s Basketball Championships between 2012 to 2015.
