Pitt's Pat Narduzzi: Wrongdoing not limited to college basketball
Pitt football coach Pat Narduzzi said he's pleased with the FBI's investigation into corruption in college basketball, but he said wrongdoing is not limited to that sport.
“It's like that in some places (in football),” he said. “I don't know where. You hear rumors.
“If it's happening in basketball, it's happening in football. There's too much money to be made out there. People think they can get away with it.
“It's nice that the FBI slammed it.”
On Wednesday, 10 men, including four assistant basketball coaches at major universities, were indicted in a scandal involving bribes toward prospects, fraud and money laundering.
“It's sad,” Narduzzi said. “It's not a good situation for college athletics, period.
“That doesn't make it even for anybody when trying to compete off the field for players. It's just not the right way to do things.
“Hopefully, it makes everybody go, ‘Oh, gosh, you have to do it the right way.' That's how we do it here.”
