Interview: Minnesota’s Richard Pitino on father’s legacy and influence, Gophers’ growth

MILWAUKEE, WI – Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino was named the Big Ten’s Coach of the Year last week.  His peaking Golden Gophers burrow into Milwaukee as winners of nine of their last eleven games and just might be peaking at the right time.

Brandon Gaudin and Kelly Tripucka caught up with Richard Pitino yesterday ahead of their First Round game with Middle Tennessee State.
