Today, WDRB’s Eric Crawford spoke to Tom Jurich in a phone interview. He told Eric Crawford that if Pitino was Coach 2 that he would have fired him. You can read the full story here…..
Here is the most important excerpt:
“The idea that I would turn a blind eye toward blatant violations of NCAA rules is preposterous,” Jurich said. “No information was presented to me naming Rick Pitino as “Coach-2″ in the FBI affidavit. If I had evidence that any coach or athletic department personnel ever willfully violated NCAA rules they would be immediately dismissed. But, I have never been presented with that information.”
