Gophers part ways with HC Pitino

In a move most Gopher fans may have seen coming, Minnesota has officially parted ways with men’s basketball coach Richard Pitino after eight seasons.

Pitino went 54-96 in Big Ten play, and over the last four seasons, his teams 7-22 in the month of February in the last four years.

Pitino could be back on his feet quickly, though, as Jeff Goodman of Stadium reports Pitino and former Nebraska coach Tim Miles are the finalists to coach at New Mexico.
