Once we hire a new coach, one of the many positives will be putting the Pitino talk to rest.

Pitino would of had 0 interest in the UCLA job. He is not a west coast guy. We were lucky he was interested in us. Would be a perfect place here for him to rehab his image, while restoring our and his legacy. I still dont think this is a dead issue yet! Still can pic the garden rocking for Pitino and his johnnies


He's in Greece for crying out loud, and you're trying to tell me that he wouldn't have an interest in coaching in LA or anywhere else in the US that pays well enough???? Not buying that for one second.

That and I can stop spending so much time on this in the off season.

Or we will talk about it for years with great regrets. We talk about not hiring Mckillop or Calipari or Jay Wright all the time. Pitino will be added to the list.

Your a better man than me Mr. Tom Bradley because lo these many years I can never picture a big time coach coming to St. John's and roaming the sidelines in the cozy confines of Alumni Hall now Carnesecca Arena. Just cannot picture it and so far it hasn't happened.

This is an opportunity with special circumstances which we should take advantage of.

Whenever you think Slick Rick said something dumb like this you've already been played. It was purposeful.

From the Forbes article referenced above. Oh well, when this happens- and it will- at least SJU will still be riding the moral high horse

ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla believes Pitino will ultimately coach again.

"I think Rick Pitino, if he wants to, can be back in college coaching next year, I really do," Fraschilla said Tuesday on Jeff Goodman's Podcast. "I don't know if it's UCLA. Would he do a great job there? Yes. He's one of the best coaches of our generation, or two generations, really."

He added: "Do I think Rick will be coaching in college next year as opposed to Panathinaikos? I do."

I'm sure I read several hundred posts ago, that Pitino was to be in New York this week for a family get together...possibly Easter. Celebration. Maybe a face to face meeting set up. My dream of Pitino is still alive.
