Rick Pitino is back coaching in College Basketball after being hired by Iona last week.  When he left College Basketball a few years ago he did so after being fired by Louisville after several scandals at the school.

On Tuesday, Pitino finally admitted that he should have been fired, but he’s still unwilling to take any blame for the scandals that happened under his watch.

“Looking back on it now, I deserved to be fired by Louisville.  Was I innocent of any wrongdoing?  Yes I was, but I was the leader and I deserved to be fired.  I need to move on and that’s what I probably have learned the most.”
