Pitino: Plans to quit when contract ends in 2017

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rick Pitino says he won't coach past the
2016-2017 season when his current contract ends at Louisville.

The former Providence and Kentucky coach made the announcement
at a press conference on Tuesday. He's guided his Cardinals to a
12-0 record so far this season.

Louisville's Athletic Association granted Pitino, the only coach
to lead three different programs to the Final Four, a four-year
contract extension in August. He'll make $3 million in base salary
until the end of the 2013 season, followed by $3.9 million a year.

Louisville will host Georgetown in its Big East Conference
opener on Wednesday before traveling to face rival Kentucky on
Saturday.
