Still more incentive for Rick Pitino

Good news waiting for Rick Pitino as he wakes up in the Bahamas.

The University of Louisville Athletic Association has approved terms of his contract which extends through 2017 — $3 million annually through the 2012-13 season and rising to $3.9 million the last four years of the contract.

The deal also includes incentives for Big East Conference and NCAA Tournament performances up to $375,000 and another possible $200,000 for academic achievement.

Now go get that ring.

    He may be wearing that ring for a loooong time. The CJ right now says: Pitino’s base salary will remain at $3 million annually through the 2102-13 season, then rise to $3.9 million for the final four seasons of the contract. Now that is a long-term commitment! Go Cards!
