Radio host tells Rick Pitino he stinks, ruined the Celtics, hangs up on him


98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston had former Celtics coach Rick Pitino on as a guest, albeit very briefly, for an interview on the popular morning Toucher & Rich Show Thursday, and it may rank as shortest interviews ever for both parties.

Pitino called in to promote his newest self help book, and Fred Toucher, at the urging of Jon Wallach was ready to hit Pitino hard with some pointed questions, reports

But Toucher had other plans. Here’s the so-called interview entirely:

Fred: We are joined by Rick Pitino, former coach of the Celtics, current coach of the Louisville Cardinals who won the national championship. Rick Pitino, hello!

Pitino: Morning, guys.

Fred: You stink. You ruined the Celtics. [HANG UP]

Pitino’s time with the Boston Celtics from 1997 to 2001 was pretty bad, so you could see why there’s some resentment. The team had a losing record in all four of his seasons.
