Ex-Louisville basketball assistant coach Dino Gaudio is expected to plead guilty during a change of plea hearing on June 4 for his federal extortion case.

Here’s more from Jason Riley of WDRB:

It was expected Gaudio had already worked out a plea agreement with prosecutors, because he waived his right to have his case presented to a grand jury. And his attorneys have said he would take responsibility for his actions, which were caught on tape.

There is no indication in court records as to whether the plea agreement will require Gaudio to spend any time incarcerated. He is eligible for probation.

Gaudio also faces a fine of up to $250,000.

A document filed with the change of plea schedule has been sealed.

The fact that this whole thing even got to this point remains mind-blowing.

Here’s hoping June 4 is the last time we have to talk about any of this.
