Pitino was "Coach-2" and apparently spoke with the Adidas executive regarding sending money to a recruit. What a hypocrit. He's spoken out about shoe companies involved in recruiting and was playing in the same mud pit with them anyway.
Edit: One of the mentions of Coach-2 in the documents is: "no one swings a bigger dick than Coach-2" at Adidas. All he has to do is call them and say "these are my guys" and they'll take care of it. (36d)
