Pitino Apologizes For 'Indiscretion' 6 Years Ago

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino says he's sorry to his family and his players for what he calls an "indiscretion" six years ago.

Pitino also apologized to the university and says he'll continue coaching the Cardinals "as long as they will have me."

Pitino told police he had sex at a Louisville restaurant six years ago with a woman who approached him. She's since been charged with trying to extort money from him.

At a press conference Wednesday he did not specifically address the police report but said he'd already apologized to his family months ago and now wants to apologize to his extended family at the university.

He says he'll continue to cooperate with authorities in the extortion case.
