Between winning a National Championship, being deep in the horse-racing world, and getting his first tattoo, it’s already been a memorable 2013 for Louisville head coach Rick Pitino.

Thankfully, Pitino will document Louisville’s championship run in his newest book due out in October, which is tentatively titled, “The One-Day Contract: How to Add Value to Every Minute of Your Life.”

Pitino has already authored three books — “Lead to Succeed,” “Success Is a Choice” and “Rebound Rules” — and according to the book’s publisher, St. Martin’s Press, the newest chapter in Pitino’s life will be released on October 1st.

While we’re not sure if the book will mention the horse racing or tattoo, it will definitely delve into Louisville’s memorable 2012-13 national championship run while also talking about Pitino’s “years of personal and professional experiences,” according to St. Martin’s Press.

It will be interesting to hear Pitino’s words on this group, including the three consecutive losses in the Big East after attaining a No. 1 ranking, the five-overtime thriller in South Bend against Notre Dame, the Big East Tournament and the NCAA Tournament run — including Kevin Ware’s broken leg.

    How could anyone buy a book by this ego maniac? You get wealthy by the perception of hard work and discipline then get caught nailing a floozie in a restaurant. No telling the times he got away with it. No I am not god and I couldn’t care less about his personal life but it’s amazing to me idiots fall for BS and have short memories. The floozie is by all means getting what she deserves but look at the lives this greedy ego maniac ruined and all he sees it as a bump in the road yesterday. Zebras don’t change their stripes.

    I have read Rebound Rules. It is a very good book. You obviously have no compassion for forgiveness. You can tell his family has. I see a new passion in him that went away for awhile. BTW you must be perfect and have no temptations that you have succumbed to. You can by what he says and does that he cares about what is best for his players and also makes sure they understand his expectations. Work on creating the ability to forgive.
