Biography

Most recently, Rick Pitino became the first NCAA coach to lead three different teams to the NCAA Final Four. Leading through his own example of hard work and solid execution, he transformed each of his college teams, leading Kentucky's men's basketball team to the Final Four three times in five years. He is ranked on two of coaching's most elite lists: the active college basketball coaches for most wins and the all-time college basketball coaches for most wins. With a talent for rebuilding and re-energizing stumbling organizations, his techniques are a proven commodity--in sports and in the business world.

Rick Pitino, one of the most brilliant minds in coaching, began a new era in University of Louisville men's basketball when he was named head coach of the Cardinals in March 2001. His up-tempo style, pressure defense, strong work ethic and family atmosphere have quickly returned the Cardinals to national prominence with top 25 rankings over the last four years.

Captivating and charismatic, Mr. Pitino offers practical steps to building personal self-esteem as well as "team ego." He teaches audiences to maintain focus and act with group integrity through decisiveness, flexibility and consistency.

Rick Pitino led the University of Louisville Cardinals back to the NCAA tournament and put them on the road to a national title, including a Final Four appearance in 2005. He served as head coach of the Boston Celtics and earned the University of Kentucky Wildcats their 1996 NCAA Championship. He is a man who knows that victories are earned--through the hard lessons of past defeat.

A 2006 inductee to the New York City Hall of Fame, Mr. Pitino has embraced the storied tradition of Louisville Basketball and made a commitment to producing a vibrant program.

Aside from his hoops prowess, Rick Pitino has achieved success off the court as well in such realms as broadcasting, publishing, motivational speaking and horse racing. He is an accomplished author, producing such books as the best seller Success Is A Choice and Lead to Succeed.
