Report: New Zealand basketball team offers Rick Pitino coaching job

Rick Pitino

Rick Pitino’s coaching career in the United States appears pretty shot, so he may have to look overseas.

If he wants to, though, he’ll reportedly have the opportunity. According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the NBL’s New Zealand Breakers have reached out to Pitino’s representatives to try to sell him on coaching there.

Pitino may have some major skeletons in his closet stateside. That will be less of an issue on the other side of the world, where a team like this will be looking for publicity and a high-profile track record of success. That said, it may be a longshot convincing him to take up the role.
