Disgraced college basketball coach Rick Pitino has told his side of the story in a memoir earlier this year.

Now it’s time for an outsider’s perspective.

Michael Sokolove examines the Pitino case as well as the general atmosphere of college basketball programs in a new book, The Last Temptation of Rick Pitino.

The book was released about a month before a jury convicted three men of conspiring to use cash payments to recruit players to college basketball programs, including the University of Louisville (where Pitino formerly coached).

In the wake of that, you can listen to Sokolove discuss corrupt recruitment practices with Dave Davies on Fresh Air below or read a transcript of the interview on NPR’s website.
