Found March 07, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
As I’m most of you have already heard by now, Rick Pitino won his 300th career game as the head coach of Louisville on Monday night. His son, Richard, who is now the head coach at Florida International, got a pretty sensational congratulatory gift for his old man. Above is an autographed picture of rapper Pitbull. Richard posted this photo on his Twitter account last night saying it was a gift for his father. During Louisville’s preseason tipoff luncheon, Pitino mentioned how big of a fan he is of Pitbull. He says he starts each morning without with some Pitbull on his iPod. “He used to be Mr. 305 and now he’s Mr. Worldwide,” says Pitino. The post Richard Pitino Got His Father A Congratulatory Gift For Winning 300 Games appeared first on The Cardinal Connect.
