Louisville fires Pitino 'with just cause' amid investigation

(TSX / STATS) -- The University of Louisville's athletic board voted unanimously Monday to fire Rick Pitino as men's basketball head coach in the wake of an FBI investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball.

The University of Louisville Athletic Association voted to terminate Pitino's contract "with just cause" despite an argument from Pitino's lawyers. The board voted unanimously two weeks ago to initiate the process of dismissing Pitino for cause.

The Hall of Fame coach was placed on unpaid administrative leave following a brief face-to-face meeting with interim president Gregory Postel on Sept. 27.
