Jay Williams Is Talking About Rick Pitino to Georgia

Former Kentucky basketball coach Rick Pitino could be returning to the SEC, according to ESPN's Jay Williams.

Louisville's decision to fire Pitino came after the school was named in an FBI complaint when 10 people were arrested last September following an investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball.

Rick Pitino still wants to continue coaching, and he may be eyeing the job that just opened up in the SEC.

Pitino was not shy about his anger in the interview with ESPN, saying, "Every night I go to bed, I'm bitter at the U.S. Attorney's office and at the "board of traitors" at Louisville". The former head coach has hired agent Jordan Bazant and is ready to not leave the game in a bitter mode. He said he has yet to receive any interest from college programs, but told ESPN he had an informal discussion with a representative from one National Basketball Association team about a potential opening.

"The level (in college) doesn't matter to me", Pitino said in the ESPN story. Dave Bliss has gotten multiple jobs in recent years, and what he did at Baylor was light years worse than what Pitino is accused of doing at Louisville.

"Every night I go to bed, I'm bitter at the US attorney's office and at the "board of traitors" at Louisville", Pitino said.

Pitino was sacked by Louisville in the offseason for his alleged role in the adidas pay-for-play scandal. "That being said, I love teaching basketball and am more passionate than ever". Once the news cam out, within a month, Pitino was sacked. The program is the first in modern NCAA history to vacate a national championship.
