Louisville head coach Rick Pitino is saying so long to CBS/Turner Sports and hello to ESPN.

After spending the week working alongside analysts Charles Barkley, Greg Anthony and Kenny Smith along with hosts Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson, Pitino will provide studio analysis for ESPN on Thursday and Friday.

He will be making the rounds on SportsCenter, ESPNNEWS and various college basketball specials.

I guess snowy Bristol in March beats staying at home in Louisville, eh?
