Adidas has reached a negotiated settlement with Rick Pitino, the former coach of Louisville University’s basketball team who was fired in 2017 over a bribery scandal, ESPN has reported. Pitino claimed to have no knowledge of a deal under which James Gatto, a former sports marketing executive of Adidas, and others had bribed the family of a basketball recruit to sign up with a rival team. Adidas terminated a lucrative personal services agreement with the coach after his dismissal from the university. Pitino is currently coaching a basketball team in Greece.
