Rick Pitino lasted almost a month…without talking to the media.
Unable to contain his urges any longer, today Pitino talked to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman about his future. He’s hired a new agent and plans on coaching again. Pitino even said he had an informal conversation with one NBA representative.
Of course, Slick Rick couldn’t just stick to the future. Once again, he brought up his scandalous past and these comments might be his craziest to date.
“Every night I go to bed, I’m bitter at the U.S. attorney’s office and at the ‘board of traitors‘ at Louisville,” Pitino said. “I’m not bitter at the school, but at the board of traitors.”
But wait, there’s more!
“I’ve never offered any player $5,” he said. “I’ve been assassinated by the Southern District of N.Y. without any wiretap or shred of evidence, and the University of Louisville. That being said, I love teaching basketball and am more passionate than ever.”
Keep fighting the good fight, (and providing content) Rick.
