REPORT: Rick Pitino has been fired

According to a new report, Rick Pitino has been fired.

How loyal is Tom Jurich to Rick Pitino? According to Kent Taylor, UofL interim president Greg Postel asked Jurich to fire Pitino, but Jurich refused, so Postel fired them both.

Pitino’s body language as he leaves Postel’s office says it all:

UofL will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. Neither Jurich or Pitino will attend. KSR will stay on air through 2 p.m., and we will have a live stream of the presser on the site.

    I may be wrong, but I doubt Jurich had complete loyalty here. It’s common practice for a new regime to ask the old regime to be the hatchet man. Jurich probably inquired about whether he would save his job if he fired Rick, and when told “no,” then he said “fire him yourself.”

    Couldn’t happen to a nice ass.

    I’m convinced part of the reason the entire basketball department went rogue is because Cal was getting the top players and regularly beating UL / Pitino. His ego couldn’t take it and he desperately had to try to find a way to get competitive vs. UK again.

    It blew up in his face.

    On the bright side for Pitino….I think he can now attend the first 5 games of the season.

    I’ve read Card Chronicle more in the last two days than I have in my life. The comments are hilarious. They mad. And sad. Quality entertainment.

      They also salty and desperately want UK to be caught up in this.

      So true, JDub. It’s the only hope they have left.

    Well, everyone in the media is slipping. Where are the Alan Cutlers of the world when you need them? That reporter only followed him to one doorway, no sprint, and no follow up questions…!!
