Pitino and Petrino have similar sounding names and both know how to win. It isn’t surprising that the P & P tandem ranked second among ACC coaches for football and men’s basketball. In the Cards first season in the ACC, Petrino’s squad finished 9-4, 5-3 and was ranked 24th to close the season. Pitino’s team is 20-5 , 8-4 and is currently ranked 12th. You can expect more of these results to continue going forward.
Football: Bobby Petrino | Basketball: Rick Pitino
The Petrino/Pitino duo is back at Louisville for the first time since 2006. Having both coaches is still a boon for the Cardinals. Petrino went 9-4 and finished in the top 25 in his first season back with the Cardinals, a notable feat considering the revolving door at quarterback and that it was the football program’s indoctrination into the ACC. Petrino has finished in the top 25 in six of 10 seasons as a head coach, including four times in five total seasons at Louisville. Pitino has seven Final Fours and two national championships, including the 2013 title.
