Pitino resigns from Boston Celtics
Former Kentucky coach expected to return to collegiate level
BACK TO SCHOOL
Pitino's collegiate coaching record
From staff and wire repoits
Rick Pitino has decided to resign as head coach of the Boston
*etics after Boston's fifth straight loss, ESPN reported. Pitino is
102-146 in three seasons with the Celtics.
Pitino said since late last season that this season would be his
last in Boston if the Celtics didn't make the playoffs.
The Celtics have lost 11 of their last 14 games.
Earlier this week, Pitino revealed that he put his Boston town-
house up for sale, although he said his decision to sell had noth-
ing to do with the Celtics. He said his family didn't need as big a
house with his son, Richard, leaving for college next year.
Pitino, who is known for turning troubled programs around,
promised to coach the Celtics back into the playoffs within three
seasons. At the time, Pitino anticipated drafting Tim Duncan with
the first pick in the draft, but when Boston did not win the lottery,
the Celtics settled for Ron Mercer and Chauncey Billups. The
Celtics have since traded both players.
Pitino coached Kentucky to a national title and three Final
Fours before leaving for the NBA and had success coaching at
Providence and for the New York Knicks before coaching at
ESPN.com and CNNSI.com both reported that Pitino will like-
ly return to coaching at the collegiate level.
Celtics assistant Jim O'Brien will take over the team as inter-

Total (15 seasons)
Rick Pitino never had the success in the NBA that he had at the college level.

Conference season scoreless, Haywood

North Carolina handed Wake Forest its
first loss, 70-69 Saturday night. S
for real. Even the Hoyas weren't sure.
Now they know.
Overcoming a few nerves in one of their biggest
games in years, the Hoyas nearly pitched a shutout
against Seton Hall's leading scorer as they beat
the 11th-ranked Pirates 78-66 Saturday.
"I don't know if anyone's noticed, but we
haven't lost a game yet," said coach Craig
Esherick, when asked if he now had the
team to beat in the Big East.
Could be worse: Stanford finally won
one on Lute Olson Court, and
"A couple of guys at the barber
shop gave me a hard time. You
know how it is at the barber
shop," Haywood said. "They were
