Brian Bowen Will Not Play At UofL

Brian Bowen Will Not Play At UofL

The university is under FBI investigation for a pay-to-play scandal involving freshman Brian Bowen and a 2019 recruit.

While Bowen won't be able to play basketball at Louisville, he will not lose his academic scholarship if he stays at the school, ESPN reported.

"Brian has been a responsible young man for the institution since he enrolled", Tyra said in a statement. 'He has endeared himself to his teammates and the men's basketball staff with a positive attitude during a very hard period'. With all the scandal that has plagued the Louisville program in recent years, the organization will play this one safe and not allow Bowen - who recently hired an attorney - to suit up in a Cardinals uniform. The FBI then put Brian Bowen's future into the hands of Louisville, and his fate has been determined. Federal documents allege that Adidas funneled $100,000 to an unnamed player, later identified as Bowen, to sign with Louisville at the request of a Cardinals coach. Johnson is the second Louisville assistant to be dismissed over the investigation. The school says it will not comment on the personnel matter.

Louisville's Athletic Association officially fired Pitino "with just cause" in October - almost three weeks after the school acknowledged that its men's basketball program was being investigated as part of the federal corruption probe. His status changed soon after the investigation unfolded and had been in question until Wednesday's announcement.
