Ragsdale added that the book will be about his entire coaching career, but heavily focus on the issues that engulfed his final years as a Division 1 head coach.

Pitino was officially fired after being placed on leave on Oct. 16th, as the university terminated his contract with "just cause" in the fallout of an FBI investigation into school corruption in the athletic department and involvement with Adidas.

This came after Louisville was forced to vacate its 2013 NCAA championship as punishment for the sex scandal that occurred under Pitino where strippers were hired to perform and have sex with recruits by staff member Andre McGee.

Pitino has a career record of 770-271 over 32 years as a coach in the collegiate ranks, and is the first coach in NCAA history to take three different programs - Providence, Kentucky, and Louisville - to the Final Four.
