Not quite as fast as a New York minute but …
Rick Pitino told ESPN’s Pat Forde today there’s no substance to the rumor that he’s interested in coaching the New Jersey Nets.
“There’s not an ounce of truth to it. I have no interest, period. I’m done with coaching professional basketball. I’ve put the professional ranks behind me.”
If that’s the case, someone in the Nets’ organization was lying about Pitino expressing interest … or the Nets weren’t interested.
Record time for putting a coaching rumor to rest.
