Pitino has memoir coming out in September

Former Kentucky and Louisville coach Rick Pitino has a memoir coming out that “lays all the cards on the table.” Diversion Books announced today “Pitino, My Story” will be coming out September 4th. The book will cover everything from his time coaching the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics to his triumphant and troubled career at UK and U of L.

Pitino was ousted from Louisville last year amid a multiyear, multi school investigation into the alleged payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks designed to influence recruits. He has denied any wrongdoing and will take on “opportunistic agents” and “predatory apparel companies” among others, according to his publisher.
