In an interview with Terry Meiners on 840 WHAS this evening, Rick Pitino said he has no plans to resign.
“I don’t know what resigning would accomplish,” he told Meiners. “I think that’s the cowardly way out.”
Pitino insists he knows nothing about what Katina Powell alleges and quitting now wouldn’t help. He wants to stay with his two fifth-year seniors and coach the Louisville Cardinals basketball team, not run away.
“I’m thinking of my 13 players and I’m thinking of my program.”
Pitino also said he doesn’t know why UofL’s President left his name out of today’s statement and that is beyond his control.
