Pitino confirms Sallie, Coleman will not be Cardinals

In a radio interview on 790 WKRD this morning, Rick Pitino confirmed that Memphis transfer Roburt Sallie and freshman Justin Coleman will not be joining the Louisville basketball team this season because of academic issues.

Each player figured to play a role (Sallie as a shooter, Coleman as a athletic wing) the Cardinals desperately needed.

Huge bummer.

A couple of other notes from the Pitino interview:

--Preston Knowles is out of the doghouse and has been completely reinstated.

--With Sallie and Coleman out, Jared Swopshire and Kyle Kuric will likely battle for the starting job at the three. Good news for those (all) of us in the "Swop shouldn't play the four" crowd.

Get big, Rock.
