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

03/16/2017

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.

Earning the fifth seed in the Midwest, Minnesota enters the NCAA Tournament with arguably their best team since the 1997 squad that reached the Final Four in Indianapolis.

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