Pitino and Crean release statements on new Assistant Kenny Johnson
The University of Louisville and Indiana University both released statements today on new UofL Assistant Basketball coach Kenny Johnson.
Rick Pitino Statement:
“We’re very excited to have Kenny in our program,” said Pitino. “The first thing I did whenKevin Keatts left to become the head coach at UNC Wilmington was to ask my son Richard (Pitino, head coach at Minnesota) to find the best rising assistant coach in the business. He spoke to a lot of people and they led directly to Kenny Johnson and others think he is outstanding as well. He is extremely bright, having studied cell, molecular biology and genetics in college.”
