LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U of L men's basketball coach Rick Pitino is a new member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, but he's now in the running for an ESPY award.
Pitino received the nomination Thursday in the category for Best Coach/Manager of the Year. Other coaches nominated include Arizona Cardinals head coach and former Colts interim Bruce Arians, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma, Duke lacrosse coach John Danowski and Miami Heats head coach Erik Spoelstra.
During the 2012-13 season, Pitino guided U of L to a Big East regular-season title, tournament title and the NCAA championship. It was Louisville's third national championship and first in 27 years.
In addition to Louisville's success on the court, Pitino directed his team to an all-time high in the classroom. The Cardinals produced a collective 3.295 grade-point average for the 2012-13 academic year, with a record 3.41 combined GPA for the fall semester, the highest in program history. A total of 15 Cardinals earned a 3.0 or better for the fall semester.
Fans can vote online now until the show, which is scheduled for July 17, to determine the winner of the category.
The U of L women's basketball team is also nominated for an ESPY, in the category of Best Upset. The Lady Cards defeated top-ranked Baylor in the Sweet 16. Fans can vote for that category online, by clicking here.
