Rick Pitino is coming back to America

He’s baaaaaack.

Only a week after saying he would be happy to spend the rest of his life in Greece, Rick Pitino is returning to the United States. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Pitino turned down an offer from Panathinaikos to return as the president and head coach to come back to the States in hopes of landing a job in the NBA in coaching, player personnel, or an advisory role.

Pitino posted this message about the decision on social media:

Welcome back, Rick. We’ve missed your drama.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he already has an offer from an NBA franchise. Which ones have current vacancies?

    The second that he said he could spend the rest of his life there should’ve been a sign that he’s leaving!
