Pitino Says He's Not Leaving For the NBA

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville says coach Rick Pitino is not
interested in returning to the NBA.
The university insists there is no truth to a Yahoo! Sports
report that said Pitino had inquired about the Sacramento Kings'
vacant coaching job. Louisville spokesman Kenny Klein said Pitino
was in his office Friday but did not feel it necessary to address
the situation.
Pitino just finished his eighth season with the Cardinals,
leading Louisville to a 31-6 record and the Big East regular-season
and tournament titles. The Cardinals lost to Michigan State in the
regional finals of the NCAA tournament.
Pitino has coached two NBA teams. He went 90-74 with the New
York Knicks from 1987 to 1989 and 102-146 with the Boston Celtics
from 1997 to 2001.
