Kevin Keatts Joins Rick Pitino at Louisville
Louisville announced today that Hargrave Military Academy coach Kevin Keatts will be joining Rick Pitino on the bench as an assistant. Keatts becomes the third assistant to be hired in the last few days after former assistants Steve Masiello left for a head coaching position at Manhattan College, Tim Fuller joined the Missouri coaching staff, and Ralph Willard announced he will not be returning next season. Keatts joins newly hired assistants Richard Pitino, Rick’s son, who spent last season as an assistant under Florida’s Billy Donovan, and Wyking Jones, who was recently an assistant at New Mexico. At Hargrave, Keatts won two national prep championships in eight seasons.
