LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -Louisville says coach Rick Pitino is not interested in returning to the NBA.
The university insists there is no truth to a Yahoo! Sports report that said Pitino had inquired about the Sacramento Kings' vacant coaching job. Louisville spokesman Kenny Klein said Pitino was in his office Friday but did not feel it necessary to address the situation.
Pitino just finished his eighth season with the Cardinals, leading Louisville to a 31-6 record and the Big East regular-season and tournament titles. The Cardinals lost to Michigan State in the regional finals of the NCAA tournament.
Pitino has coached two NBA teams. He went 90-74 with the New York Knicks from 1987 to 1989 and 102-146 with the Boston Celtics from 1997 to 2001.
