A wise man once said, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is." That's been the case throughout Rick Pitino's search for a new college basketball head coaching gig, but Vegas still believes it can happen. Following John Beilein's abrupt departure from Ann Arbor, Bovada has released odds for who will fill the Michigan head coaching vacancy. Rick Pitino is the second choice, behind only Texas Tech's Chris Beard. Pitino is even higher than former Fab Five member and current NBA Heat assistant coach, Juwan Howard.
  • Chris Beard +275
  • Rick Pitino +475
  • Juwan Howard +500
  • Lavell Jordan +800
  • Mike White +800
  • Saddi Washington +950
  • Luke Yalich +950
  • Bob McKillop +2000
  • Bobby Hurley +2000
  • Jay Wright +2000
You can find the rest of the odds here. For those who don't believe it could happen, it almost happened once before. When Pitino chose to coach the Louisville Cardinals, Michigan was his other option. If the program that was caught cheating in the early 90s is still down for a cheater, Ann Arbor is the perfect place for Pitino. [mobile_ad]
