PITINO SAYS HE’S STAYING WHICH MEANS HE’S LEAVING

Rick Pitino says he's happy coaching Louisville and wouldn't consider returning to Kentucky, the school he led to the national championship in 1996. "I would never ever leave [Louisville] to go to another college because they're my family," Pitino said yesterday. Didn’t Nick Saban say that about three times?

Pitino, who was "shocked" by Tubby Smith's sudden departure last week, sees too much potential in the Cardinals to consider leaving. Louisville went 24-10 this season and finished second in the Big East before falling to Texas A & M in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky will hold a press conference later today to announce hiring Pitino as their new head coach.
