Daily Roundup – 2/5/16

  • Looking for a home in South Florida? Louisville head coach Rick Pitino has recently listed his newly renovated Miami-area mansion for $25.9 million.  According to the Wall Street Journal, Pitino and his wife Joanne purchased the waterfront home for $5.4 million in 1999. Over the past year, the home has been renovated and expanded, with a new wing and swimming pool.  The home has eight bedrooms and an elevator and measures about 12,000 square feet. The house sits on about 1.3 acres, with roughly 130 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay.  Seems like a pretty good deal to me…

  • Winona State University’s president says an independent investigation into complaints against former men’s basketball coach Mike Leaf found no evidence that he did anything wrong. A basketball player accused Leaf of making unwanted sexual advances last June and the coach was placed on administrative leave and barred from campus. He chose to resign. A subsequent investigation found no evidence of a discriminatory act or any abuse of students. Olson also says there was no evidence the athletic staff was trying to hide anything.

  • A nice honor for Franklin & Marshall head coach Glenn Robinson.  Earlier this week, Rep. Joseph R. Pitts (PA-16) spoke on the floor of the House in honor of Coach Robinson.  He said some great things about the legendary coach – you can watch his speech here.
