He has dodged many scandals, all of which you could claim he should have been fired for.
The university stuck with him through that and because they don't here, he's pissed? What a douche.
And let's be clear about something....when the feds have you, you are done. Their success rate is extremely high.
I mean, any of us would be pissed if we lost our job, even if we knew that we entirely deserved it. So that attitude isn't surprising, especially if they really aren't following their procedures or his contract.
And honestly, what does he have to lose? The possibility of an analyst job? He's not going to coach again, so either he fights and wins, fights and loses, or fights and they pay him off (which is what will happen, of course).
Louisville is trying to cover its collective ass, because they know the NCAA is going to crush them (actual death penalty or no--they could "just" get the Bob Wade treatment). They're in panic mode, and are doing dumb things in a rash manner, and those things will come back to bite them in the end.
