Rick Pitino said resigning is the “cowardly way out”

pitin-ho

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.

    I am having hard time warping my head around this situation. How did this go on without coaching staffs knowledge particularly RP?

      Did Cal know about Rose’s ACT? Probably not, it is simple as that.

      ^^ Yep, and they still vacated Cal’s Final Four.

      YOU’RE NEXT, PITINO! 😀

      Rose’s ACT test happened before he made it to campus, so that’s not anywhere near the same as something happening on campus during a recruiting visit.

    Pimptino will be forced out after he gets severance pay in the form of skank hummers on his 1/2 of 1 testicle he has left.

    Drew/Matt, please don’t tell us you have sympathy for the UL head coach anymore. Its ridiculous when he is caught ‘red’ handed and can’t get out of this.

    I prefer he remain the coach and take his beatings like a man. Maybe he will finally ask to have his banner removed from Rupp.

    What I don’t understand is why is Fitino doing these public appearances? He is his own worst enemy. Hey Rick were you a coward when you’ve been cheating on your wife for 30 years; when you exploited young recruits with your own perverted sense of satisfaction: or when continually lie through your teeth every time you find yourself in a tough situation. What would you know about not being a coward?

    Taking responsibility is cowardly? OK, then. I need to rethink what I’ve taught my son I guess. Hookers + Sypher = Resignation

    Hey Pimptino – a coward aborts his own flesh, even if it was adultery and conceived thru a whore on a restaurant table.

    Ever think about that CHILD you threw in the trash you piece of s%#t?

    Cowards cheat on their wives. Cowards hide behind the legacy of their dead brother-in-law. Cowards lie their way in and out of difficult situations.

    I was fired from the University of Louisville and all I got was a table at Porcini’s and this ridiculous tattoo.

      How ironic that Pitino will forever be scarred by that horrible tattoo with that sick Cardinal haunting him all his days?



  10. Remember little Ricky?

    lets not forget Little Ricky was on the staff too. He knew and so did his dad.

    If he resigns now, who pays for his hookers without JoAnn seeing the papertrail?

    What’s most interesting to me as that from his tone and comments, he indicates it’s true. Even his response in the interview about the CBS Sports report is not that the report isn’t true, but that the NCAA leaked it. If he can’t believe it happened, you’d think that he would just be saying that and telling the media that they shouldn’t jump to conclusions before the investigation is done. Very weird response from RP.

    Well I hate to admit but it he’s right, I don’t want him to leave. I want him to stay and go down with his burning ship, face it like a man Rick
