True but he is a face, if not the face, of a major university which is not that far off from being a politician. Universities fire people all the time for doing things that make them look bad in the community. Pitino is in a very influential position within the university and the community and he probably is lucky to still have a job. Honestly, one cannot help but wonder if he is still the head coach were he not coming off back-to-back Elite Eight appearances in the tournament. Is he still there if this is 2006 and he is coming off a NIT appearance?
