Rick Pitino was not able to bring the Celtics a championship. He was not able to get the Celtics into the playoffs. Wasn't even able to have one winning season in Boston. But he is a great college coach and his Louisville Cardinals won the national championship tonight. On the bright side for Michigan no one called a timeout they didn't have, so that's progress.
Now when the buzzer sounded and Pitino went over to shake Michigan head coach John Beilein's hand that's when he thought he had bit the bullet (it was just the confetti machine). No Celtics snipers in the stands. Don't worry Rick the Ruler.
Credit Guyism for the gif.
