My man Rick Bozich is reporting that Richard Pitino is in talks to be the new coach at Minnesota.
Word around U of L is Richard Pitino in negotiations with Minnesota. If so, inspired choice. Bright and enthusiastic guy.

So if hired at Minnesota, Richard Pitino would succeed the coach, Tubby Smith, who succeeded his father at Kentucky.
Meanwhile, at Texas Tech, Smith is succeeding the man, Billy Gillispie, who succeeded him at Kentucky.
