You may or may not remember what Louisville Cardinals women's basketball coach Jeff Walz said after a comment that UConn Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma said during the 2013 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. So let's refresh your memory: Auriemma: He wears an Italian tablecloth for a shirt. I was going to hire him for my restaurant. Walz: This will most likely be the last game that I coach here.  It's been a great six years.  As a women's basketball coach, you go through times where you're always wondering what are you gonna do when you're finished.  And I've been to three national championship games.  And now that I've got the opportunity to be a waiter in his restaurant (laughter), I don't know what the hell else somebody wants in life.  So my goal is to become the head waiter.  Not just one that sits in the back.  I want to be the best damn one he's got.  So I'm going to talk to him after the game tomorrow night and see when I can start, see if we can talk a contract through, and hopefully we can get things taken care of.  Because it would be an honor to work in his restaurant. I love the guy.  He's a great guy. Auriemma: I heard about that, that he had said that.  I ran into Shoni Schimmel's parents on the way over here, and they said they're all for it and the Schimmel twins are transferring to Connecticut (laughter).  Even though they're not twins.  So that's the plus side of him resigning or retiring. He doesn't dress well enough to work in the front room of my restaurant (laughter), so he'll be bussing dishes and taking out the trash in the back until he fixes his attitude. With Louisville playing its one and only year in the American and the women's basketball tournament being played at Mohegan Sun which happens to house one of Auriemma's restaurants, could Walz actually be a waiter one night? The Hartford Courant's John Altavilla recently caught up with Walz and here's what he had to say: “I’m hoping to be a guest waiter one night during the Tournament at Geno’s Restaurant,” How great would that be? You go to the Geno's Pub and the Louisville women's basketball coach is your waiter. But more importantly, I can't wait to hear what Auriemma has to say about this. photo credit: ap photo
