The University of Louisville and Rick Pitino both have filed their responses to the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations. Both documents were sent to the NCAA on January 17, 2017 and the NCAA made public both documents on Wednesday.
In its response UofL does not dispute the majority of the allegations, but in both reports the school & Rick Pitino himself both vehemently dispute that Pitino failed to monitor Andre McGee.
The documents do go through a series of interviews revealing that Andre McGee did initially speak with investigators before halting his contact due to possible criminal charges being brought. Also the interviews show that former recruits were ‘turned off’ by the activities spearheaded by Andre McGee.
The University removed the basketball program from post-season play for the 2015-16 season and imposed scholarship restrictions as a result of Andre McGee’s illicit activities. Both reports are available to read in full below:
