Texas Tech has expressed serious interest in Rick Pitino for its head coaching vacancy, a source told CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

The 70-year-old has spent the past three seasons at Iona, where he’s guided the Gaels to a 62-21 mark and an NCAA Tournament appearance.

Pitino is the only bench boss to lead three different schools to the Final Four. The Hall of Famer has won national championships with Kentucky and Louisville, though the title with the latter was later vacated.

Pitino has also been linked with St. John’s after the Red Storm parted ways with Mike Anderson after four seasons.

The Red Raiders are in need of a new bench boss following Mark Adams’ resignation.

Texas Tech’s season ended Wednesday with a loss to West Virginia in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament.
