(TSX / STATS) -- Former Louisville coach Rick Pitino filed a lawsuit against Adidas on Tuesday, one day after the apparel company terminated its personal services contract with him.

Pitino was officially fired by Louisville on Monday in the wake of an FBI investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball. Hours later, Adidas ended its agreement with the beleaguered coach.

Pitino's suit against Adidas was filed in U.S. District Court and seeks unspecified actual damages, punitive damages and attorney fees.
