Pitino Gets Pitbull Autograph for Big Win


Remembering how his dad, Rick, mentioned in October how much he liked Pitbull, Richard Pitino got his father a special present to congratulate him on his 300th win at Louisville this past Monday: A signed picture from the hip-hop star.

“I want to say it is true honor to write this to you,” Pitbull wrote on the photo in addition to lending his John Hancock.

The younger Pitino is in his first year as the head coach at Florida International, located just outside Pitbull’s hometown of Miami. As the younger Pitino tweeted, “The perks of living in Miami!”

Now if only Richard Pitino can score some backstage passes for his dad to a concert, a la Frank Martin.
