Richard Pitino heading to Florida

According to Fox Sports' Jeff Goodman.

Louisville assistant coach Richard Pitino is headed to Gainesville to join Billy Donovan's staff at Florida.

According to sources close to the situation, Pitino — the son of Louisville coach Rick Pitino — will leave his father's program.

The elder Pitino coached Donovan back at Providence.

An official announcement could come as early as Monday.

This is a great move for the younger Pitino, who already has some buzz around his name but needs to prove he can get the job done at a major program not coached by his father before he lands a head coaching job. Either that, or Andre McGee's "Little Rick" comment really rubbed him the wrong way.

Best of luck to Richard in Gainesville.
