In September, Louisville confirmed it was among the college basketball programs targeted in an FBI pay-for-play investigation.

I don't know that Pitino will actually be able to get a job during this cycle of the coaching carousel, but I do think that he'll eventually find his way back into coaching.

But Pitino is also still bitter about his firing, and he told ESPN on Friday that he's specifically angry with the school's "board of traitors". Pitino said. "I'm not bitter at the school, but at the Board of Traitors".

Practically alongside the news of Fox's dismissal, Mike DeCourcy of Sporting News reported former IN coach and current ESPN analyst Tom Crean would be interested IN the job at Georgia. "That being said, I love teaching basketball and am more passionate than ever".

Man City boss Guardiola: How I've changed since Barcelona days
For the league leaders it is also about getting back to winning ways after they were beaten 2-1 home by Basel in midweek, a result that did not impact on their qualification for the quarter-finals as they went through 5-2 on aggregate.

According to the report, Pitino has yet to receive interest from any college basketball programs, but had an informal discussion with a rep from an NBA team. Dave Bliss has gotten multiple jobs in recent years, and what he did at Baylor was light years worse than what Pitino is accused of doing at Louisville. He said he doesn't care at what level, although it's hard to imagine the high school who would sign off on Pitino's hiring, and he's already tried the National Basketball Association thing.

"I've never offered any player five dollars", he added. Within a month, Pitino was sacked.

If Georgia is willing to believe in Pitino, it could be a ideal marriage for a coach seeking redemption and a program in need of rejuvenation. The program is the first in modern NCAA history to vacate a national championship.
