Pitino denies interest in Nets job

Former Celtics coach and current University of Louisville mentor Rick Pitino told ESPN.com that a report in the New York Daily News suggesting he had reached out to the management of the New Jersey Nets, having intermediaries contact Nets president Rod Thorn regarding the teams head coaching position, are false. "There's not an ounce of truth to it," Pitino told ESPN.com's Pat Forde. Pitino went on to say, "I have no interest, period. I'm done with coaching professional basketball. I've put the professional ranks behind me." According to the ESPN report, sources within the Nets organization told the ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that Pinto may have used third-party contacts to get word to the Nets' incoming owner, Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, of the coach's potential interest.
