Former Louisville head coach Rick Pitino joined the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday morning as he discussed his legacy, his time at Louisville and some of the things he’s been involved in since he was fired from coaching the Cardinals.
Recently releasing a book telling his side of the story against Louisville and the NCAA, Pitino discussed allegations that he spoke to adidas executive Jim Gatto on the phone. Pitino maintains that two of the alleged calls were voicemails.
Pitino also says that the NCAA only suspended him five games for his misconduct at Louisville, as he believes that he would be banned from college coaching had he knew more about what happened under his watch.
The video checks in at little more than seven minutes and gives an interesting insight into Pitino’s time away from coaching and his plans to sue to restore his name.
