A friend of his says yes, but Pitino says no.
The Times-Union quotes Roddy Valente of Loudonville as saying Pitino wants to talk to Siena officials about the opening, but Pitino, who was fired by Louisville in October with the program under investigation in a federal corruption probe, denied any interest.
Jimmy Patsos resigned over the weekend after allegations he verbally abused a student manager.
The resignation takes effect immediately. NewsChannel 13 reports a settlement has been worked out, said to be in the neighborhood of $350,000.
