JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Louisville TV station has released details from the NCAA and Louisville Police investigation into the University of Louisville basketball program from back in 2014.
A-State Head Basketball Coach Mike Balado was an assistant coach at Louisville during that time.
The details show that Balado and one of the main co-conspirators Andre McGee texted and spoke by phone during the time line dozens of times.
We want to point out, none of the information released to the TV station is new – but the TV station just got ahold of that information.
Balado has been cleared by the NCAA and Louisville Police from any wrongdoing.
A-State is standing by their coach as well, releasing the following statement to Region 8 News saying:
McGee was found guilty of major violations and the NCAA gave him a 10-year show cause order which effectively bans any NCAA institution from hiring him.
Head Coach Rick Pitno was found guilty of failing to monitor McGee, and Pitno was later fired after U of L was linked to an ongoing federal investigation into college basketball recruiting.
