After he and ESPN parted ways this summer, former Grantland contributor Bill Simmons has moved on to bigger and better things. He’s got a new podcast that has been killing it on iTunes, and will soon have his own show on HBO.
In his most recent episode, Simmons joined the group of journalists calling for Pitino to step down. His reason: common sense.
“Here’s my quick take on Pitino: If he didn’t know, he should get fired. If he did know, he should resign. Either way he should be out. How are you presiding over a program that has a hooker scandal? Either way he should go.”
While Bill still probably harbors bad feelings over Pitino’s tenure with the Celtics, his simple logic speaks for itself.
A staff member bought prostitutes for players and recruits. Prostitutes. Do you really need to say anything else? Step down, Rick.
