Rick Pitino is suing Adidas

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - One day after being fired by the University of Louisville, Rick Pitino is filing a federal lawsuit against Adidas, according to his attorney.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Louisville.

Pitino claims that Adidas employees' outrageous and unlawful conspiracy to bribe the family of a basketball recruit to attend the University of Louisville has "caused him to be publicly ridiculed, vilified, and criticized, precisely because their actions make it appear that Coach Pitino knew about or participated in their conspiracy," said Pitino's lawyer Steve Pence.
