Rick Pitino wants to get back into coaching after being fired by Louisville in October.

Louisville's decision to fire Pitino came after the school was named in an FBI complaint when 10 people were arrested last September following an investigation into fraud and corruption in college basketball.

He then spoke again of Pitino to Georgia on College Gameday Sunday morning.

But Pitino is also still bitter about his firing, and he told ESPN on Friday that he's specifically angry with the school's "board of traitors".

According to the report, Pitino has yet to receive interest from any college basketball programs, but had an informal discussion with a rep from an NBA team.

The program is the first in modern NCAA history to vacate a national championship.

Pitino coached at Louisville from 2001-17, leading the Cardinals to a national title in 2013.
