  • Rick Pitino Sues Louisville ... You Owe Me $38 MILLION!!

Former head men's basketball coach Rick Pitino sued U of L's Athletics Association Thursday, asking for more than $34 million in damages.

The lawsuit states that the board's actions violated his employment contract in two ways - first, during his suspension in September and again when he was sacked in October.

They say the $38 million figure comes from the salary Pitino was set to earn through 2026, which is when his contract ran with Louisville.

The lawsuit also alleges the university had no justification to fire Pitino "for cause" in October and failed to fix the breach within 30 days despite being notified of the breach by the coach.

Teva addresses 'internal inefficiencies' with restructuring
A 25% cut staff located in Israel, along with a 10% reduction for employees at its USA operations is painful but necessary. Last week Calcalist reported that Teva will axe thousands of jobs in the USA and Israel as part of its upcoming rehaul.

The lawsuit claims this was done without a 10-day notice being provided and a chance to be heard as required by Pitino's contract.

After Louisville fired Pitino last month amid his alleged role in the FBI's investigation into money corruption in college basketball, the now former coach of the Cardinals is fighting back. But the lawsuit claims there is nothing in the criminal complaint unsealed in late September that ties Pitino to any improper activities.

Pitino's attorney, Steve Pence says, Pitino filed the suit only after exhausting efforts to resolve his contractual dispute with the association and giving them ample time to remedy the breached contract.
