Where Is Rick Pitino Coaching Now?

Rick Pitino is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, but now he is taking his coaching talents to the EuroLeague. That’s right Rick Pitino signed a deal coach a Greek team called Panathinaikos for the rest of their season. He is expected to coach in his first game December 27th.

Rick Pitino may never be able to coach college basketball again, but the man apparently still loves to coach basketball. Pitino has coached both in the NBA and NCAA Divison 1, but now he is ready for a new challenge. According to ESPN, this is just a stepping stone for Pitino. His real goal is to be coaching an NBA team in the near future.

What NBA team would sign Rick Pitino? I didn’t think this guy would ever coach again, but this is the first step to get himself back into the NBA. If a team can get over the fact that Pitino was involved in an FBI probe, then they will get a legendary coach. He may have not won a lot of games with the Celtics and Knicks, but he won 647 games as a college coach.
