Richard Pitino hopes Dad returns to Louisville

Rick’s University of Louisville program is sitting out the Atlantic Coast and NCAA tournaments because of a self-imposed post-season ban related to allegations that strippers performed in the basketball dorm from 2010-14.

Richard’s Minnesota program has people in the Twin Cities howling, too. The Gophers lost 23 of 31 games as Pitino found himself dismissing and suspending players. The talk shows started to discuss his $7 million buyout.

Does Richard believe his father will return for a 16th season at U of L?

“I hope so,” he said.

​“I always think after every season he takes a step back and says, ‘Do I want to keep doing this? I’ve had a long, long career.’
