LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- University of Louisville president James Ramsey says it's time to move on after Rick Pitino's public apology for sex with a woman outside his marriage.

Ramsey said Thursday that the basketball coach is "our guy" and that he believes the school will become stronger following Pitino's expression of remorse on Wednesday.

The coach's apology came after police documents became public showing Pitino admitted sex six years ago with a woman who is now charged in federal court with trying to extort money from the coach. She has since told police the sex was not consensual but prosecutors cited a lack of evidence in declining to prosecute Pitino.

The coach said he plans to remain at Louisville for as long as the university allows.
