Report: Rick Pitino Hoping to Become NBA Head Coach Candidate

Updated

on

After his firing following an FBI probe at Louisville, Rick Pitino is planning to use the season to immerse himself in the NBA game and hopes to become a candidate for head-coaching openings in the spring.

“I just want to be a part of an organization,” Pitino told ESPN. “I want to develop young players. I want to be part of a team. I miss it terribly. I’m using this time to really study the NBA. If something opens up with a young basketball team, I’d have deep interest in it.

Pitino has hired Drew Rosenhaus, a high-profile NFL agent, to represent him. Rosenhaus’ company does represent two NBA players: Portland’s first-round pick Anfernee Simons and Clippers center Montrezl Harrell.
