April 7, 2007


— Rick Pitino didn't look far to find his newest assistant. The Louisville basketball coach hired his 24-year-old son, Richard Pitino, a former assistant at Duquesne, on Friday.

Pitino said another assistant, Kevin Willard, left to take the head-coaching job at Iona College in New York. Iona wouldn't confirm the hiring to replace Jeff Ruland, but said a news conference is scheduled for early next week.
