The 65-year-old Pitino spent 32 straight years as a head coach in college and the National Basketball Association from 1985-2017.

Who his sources are can and should be questioned, but ESPN analyst Jay Williams went to Twitter Saturday night to offer up Rick Pitino as a candidate at Georgia.

In September, Louisville confirmed it was among the few college basketball programs that was being searched by the FBI for the pay-for-play investigation.

He told ESPN that he is ready to turn in all of his phone records, emails and any type of voice recordings that any potential school needs to hopefully hire him.

Rick Pitino has hired New York-based agent Jordan Bazant and is in the market for a job in basketball or broadcasting, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.

But Pitino is also still bitter about his firing, and he told ESPN on Friday that he's specifically angry with the school's "board of traitors".

"Not every school will be able to look past the scandals that accumulated during Pitino's Louisville tenure", Sullivan writes.

"Every night I go to bed, I'm bitter at the USA attorney's office and at the "board of traitors" at Louisville", Pitino said. Once the news cam out, within a month, Pitino was sacked.

"The level (in college) doesn't matter to me", he said.

Pitino was sacked by Louisville last October amid an ongoing investigation into payments facilitated by the school from Adidas to a prominent recruit. "That being said, I love teaching basketball and am more passionate than ever".

Meanwhile, Pitino is a two-time national championship coach, most recently at Louisville in 2013. Pitino-coached teams have been to the Final Four seven times when including the vacated appearances from 2012 and '13 (1987, 1993, 1996, 1997, 2005, 2012, 2013).
