ESPN.com reports that Rick Pittino says "he will coach at Louisville "as long as they'll have me," after apologizing on Wednesday for "an indiscretion" he committed six years ago. Pitino did not directly address reports that he admitted that he had consensual sex with the woman charged with trying to extort him and then paid her $3,000. But he did say that "the past seven months have been very difficult on the people I love."
