Rick Pitino drawing interest from UGA

Georgia fired head coach Mark Fox after nine seasons this weekend. The Bulldogs went 18-15, 7-11 in the SEC this past season.

ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams says that Pitino is a potential candidate for the job. His name is reportedly being mentioned “a lot.”

Pitino was fired by Louisville as a result of the FBI’s investigation into the college basketball world. The Cardinals allegedly received a commitment from a five-star prospect after adidas paid $100K for it. Pitino maintains that he is innocent.

“I’ve been assassinated by the Southern District of N.Y.,” Pitino said, “without any wiretap or shred of evidence, and the University of Louisville. That being said, I love teaching basketball and am more passionate than ever.”
