Report: Rick Pitino interested in New Jersy Nets coaching gig

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Louisville coach Rick Pitino is evidently interested in taking over the woeful New Jersey Nets, according to a report from the New York Daily News.

Sources close to Pitino told the paper that the coach has reached out to Nets brass recently, expressing his desire to take over for Kiki Vanderweghe when the position becomes available in April.

Pitino's camp and the team aren't exactly confirming any of this is happening, but a high-ranking team official says the 57-year-old is "very interested" in the job. The same official adds that all the interest is of the one-way variety.

The Nets' season record currently sits at 4-47.
