Here is what Rick Pitino said about the Indiana job
The Indiana Hoosiers are looking for a new head basketball coach after firing Archie Miller this week. Rick Pitino has done so well at Iona and has such a history of strong performances, that his name has come up for the job.
But the 68-year-old coach says he is not a candidate for the job.

Jeff Goodman believes Pitino is indicating that he has a huge buyout from Iona.

Pitino heading to Indiana given the NCAA trouble he’s had seems like it would be a real longshot. If Indiana wants to go with a proven veteran coach who is available, there is one who is already favored to get the job.
