Chart: Odds and ends of the Richard Pitino hiring

  • Updated: April 5, 2013 - 8:11 PM

• Tom Herrion, now the head coach at Marshall, was the head coach at the College of Charleston in 2005 when he hired Pitino for his first job in college basketball. The administrative job, which Pitino had for a few months, didn’t even have a salary, Herrion said. Pitino had his rent paid at a one-room studio apartment and had a meal card at the school cafeteria. “It was the bottom of the food chain,” Herrion said.

• Pitino has not announced any of his Gophers assistant coaches yet, but Kimani Young, who was on his staff at Florida International, is expected to be one of them.

• It was a good day all around for the Pitino family Friday. Richard was introduced as Minnesota’s new head coach and his dad, Rick, was reportedly elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. On Saturday, Rick will coach Louisville in the NCAA semifinals.
