Former University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has promised to go after the three people he says got him fired. In his forthcoming book, Pitino has promised to tell "the real story" of his removal and the dismissal of athletics director Tom Jurich. Pitino blames the school's "board of traitors" (trustees), especially chairman David Grissom, trustee "Papa John" Schnatter, and interim school president Dr. Greg Postel.
