Rick Pitino could be staying in Greece. Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos said that Rick Pitino wants to stay as the team’s head coach, according to Eurohoops.net.
“We have one of the best coaches in the world,” Giannakopoulos said to Cosmote TV. “Everyone’s will is that he will be finally convinced and he will stay so that we will do better [next season]. We agree on 101%. We have the same opinions on basketball and everything. He wants to stay and he has expressed his desire to do so. But there must be some talks on a family level. I want to believe that we will soon receive the pleasant news that he’ll stay.”
Pitino took over the team in December and led them to win the League Title and Greek Cup.
