Yum! Center chairman says UofL basketball scandal presents ‘serious challenge’ to refinancing arena bonds

Kentucky Press News Service - September 28, 2017 - 12:48pm
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) gave final approval Thursday morning for the Louisville Arena Authority to issue refinanced bonds for the KFC Yum! Center, the culmination of a yearlong effort to save the arena from defaulting on its debt payments in the near future. However, arena authority chairman Scott C. Cox told IL Wednesday evening that the bombshell scandal rocking the University of Louisville’s men’s basketball program this week — which led to Hall of Fame Coach Rick Pitino and athletics director Tom Jurich being placed on administrative leave — could make the refinancing and marketing of those bonds more difficult, especially with the threat that attendance for their games might significantly drop. 2017-09-28T12:33:29-04:00

'Brotherhood forever': Former U of L players react to basketball scandal

Kentucky Press News Service - September 28, 2017 - 12:48pm
It pains former University of Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell to see his "brothers for life" going through the recent scandal involving "pay for play" schemes with recruits, he said on social media. "This is deeper than basketball. This is real life," Mitchell posted on Twitter Wednesday. "I know the work they've put in all summer working their butts off trying to be the best! I love y'all man and at the end of the day we have a brotherhood forever." Assistant coaches and current basketball players at the university have remained mostly silent in recent days, watching as the interim university president put longtime coach Rick Pitino on unpaid administrative leave and, according to his attorney, "effectively fired" him. 2017-09-28T11:16:51-04:00

If true, that would put Pitino in the middle of the investigation as a known party to investigators. “Coach-2” is referred to in the criminal complaint a number of times, coming up in accounts of a July 27 meeting between two named defendants, Christian Dawkins and Jonathan Brad Augustine, and an unnamed “Coach-1,” described as an assistant from “University-6,” believed to be the University of Louisville. 2017-09-28T11:12:42-04:00
