Talking Grammer, Ep. 40: New UNM Lobo basketball coach Richard Pitino

In Episode 40, I have a brief cell phone (recored for the the podcast) conversation Tuesday with newly hired UNM Lobo men’s basketball coach Richard Pitino.

We talked about what didn’t work at Minnesota, what he loves about the UNM opportunity and the influences on him as a coach from people like his dad, Hall of Famer Rick Pitino, and Billy Donovan, who had some guidance in his hiring at UNM.

And what can Lobo fans expect to see on the court from a Pitino-coached team? He explains.
