LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - It looks like Rick Pitino will once again coach basketball after being fired from the Louisville Cardinals, but he will be going overseas to do so.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports Pitino, 66, will coach EuroLeague team Panathinaikos of Greece beginning Dec. 27.

Pitino was fired from Louisville in 2017 during an FBI investigation into college basketball corruption.

Panathinaikos has finished in either first or second in the Greek Basketball League since the 2002-03 season. The team has also won six EuroLeague titles, but it hasn't made it past the quarterfinals since the 2011-12 season.
