No wonder Rick Pitino briefly flirted with the idea of taking the Sacramento Kings coaching job.
University of Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino told police that he had consensual sex with Karen Cunagin Sypher at a Louisville restaurant where he’d been drinking on Aug. 1, 2003. He also told police that he later gave Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion, according to Louisville Metro Police reports The Courier-Journal obtained under the Kentucky Open Records Act.
Pitino has been married to Joanne Minardi since 1976. That being said, all of Sypher tales after the aforementioned incidents appear to have been debunked by police.
