Rick Pitino lashes out at the media during news conference
Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino lashed out at the media this afternoon at a press conference this afternoon, accusing them of reporting lies.
Recently, Pitino has been embroiled in a legal controversy after Karen Sypher was charged with trying to extort millions from him after the two had a sexual encounter six years ago. He called the conference after a local television station aired footage of Sypher’s testimony to police about the night of the incident.
“I am a little upset,” Pitino said. “This is a
day I went home to comfort my wife, who obviously you would imagine the
last seven months has had a difficult time.
“.. . It’s a pretty sad day. On a day when Ted Kennedy died, we broke into news here in Louisville with Karen Sypher tapes.”
