A person with knowledge of Del Conte’s contract told The Associated Press he has a seven-year deal with an annual salary starting at $1.3 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school was not yet ready to publicly release contract details.
The Adidas spokeswoman says the firm put Gatto on administrative leave and ended “any consulting relationships related to the allegations,” an apparent reference to Code.
When it all came crashing down, Jurich was in Washington, D.C., at the ACC meetings. He received a call from Kenny Klein, Louisville’s senior associate athletic director for sports information. Jurich says he has never heard of Gatto or Code and that he had dealt exclusively with Murphy and Chris McGuire, Adidas’ senior director of sports marketing, who signed the sponsorship agreement. When he made it back to Louisville, Jurich says, he confronted Pitino and then-assistant coach David Padgett, who later replaced Pitino. Both denied that they were aware of the payment to Bowen.
The New York Mets have talked to at least two teams about trading right-hander Matt Harvey this offseason, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
According to the report, the Mets are looking to move Harvey for a reliever.
On Sunday, the first night of the annual MLB winter meetings, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that no player in the organization is untouchable.
Harvey, who was suspended three games last season after failing to show up for a game in May, is eligible for arbitration this winter and then free agency in the fall of 2018.
Harvey, 28, was 5-7 with a 6.70 ERA in 18 starts last season after returning from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome that cut his 2016 season short. He made only 17 starts that season, going 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA.
