Rick Pitino wants to coach again because duh

Almost two months after telling every media outlet that would listen that he never wants to coach again, Rick Pitino now says he wants to coach again. Pitino has hired high-profile NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus in hopes of marketing himself as an NBA coaching candidate.

“I just want to be a part of an organization,” Pitino told ESPN. “I want to develop young players. I want to be part of a team. I miss it terribly. I’m using this time to really study the NBA. If something opens up with a young basketball team, I’d have deep interest in it.

“I think the league is going to get younger and player development will become even more important to every organization. That’s my forte. I believe I can help an organization find a pathway to success.”

The fact that Pitino is finally admitting he wants to coach again is the least surprising thing ever; however, I’d be shocked if an NBA team took a chance on him.

    Dwayne Casey made it in the NBA after problems NCAA. The NBA does not worry about trivial NCAA issues. It is the big boy league and Rick will get a job there. Who cares about basketball right now! Beat the Dawgs.

    The G league wouldn’t give him the attention he so desperately craves. His downfall with the Celtics was that he was horrible at identifying talent. Just don’t give him total control, and he could do ok.

    I always have to laugh at the people who can’t seem to handle talking about two sports at the same time of the year. yeah it’s football season, but basketball is right around the corner…it’s okay to talk about both! “It’s football season” is typically just an excuse for teams who suck at basketball and only want to focus on football. We can talk about both, people! Unless you’re brain dead.

    Yeah, maybe a G league coach is a good place for him.

    I always laugh at people who never pass up a chance to give their opinion even if it’s totally irrelevant. I also always laugh at those same people who post insults online

      Iam, I just assumed he was talking about himself. At least he makes himself laugh, even if it’s at himself.

    At some point it becomes too pathetic to watch circus freaks and grown men having emotional break-downs in public. I wish there was a Pitino “OFF” button I could push.
