———-

Rick Pitino is an American basketball coach who is the head coach of Panathinaikos of the Greek Basket League and the EuroLeague.[3] He has been the head coach of several teams in NCAA Division I and in the NBA, including Boston University (1978–1983), Providence College(1985–1987), the New York Knicks (1987–1989), the University of Kentucky (1989–1997), the Boston Celtics (1997–2001) and the University of Louisville (2001–2017).

Pitino led Kentucky to an NCAA championship in 1996. He is the only coach to lead three different schools (Providence, Kentucky, and Louisville) to a Final Four.[4] In 2013, he was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.[4]

In June 2017, the NCAA suspended Pitino for five games of the upcoming 2017–18 season for his lack of oversight in an escort sex scandal involving recruits. Louisville’s national championship from 2013 was eventually vacated as well. In September, Pitino was implicated in a federal investigation involving bribes to recruits, which resulted in Louisville firing him for cause.
