LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Richard Pitino overspent his private jet allowance by $175,000.

That's according to an internal audit obtained by the Minnesota Star Tribune.

The University of Minnesota men's basketball coach was given $150,000 for his first three seasons, but since he was hired, he spent $325,000 and hasn't led the Gophers to an NCAA tournament. 

Both basketball programs have spent more than allowed on hotels, private cars, meals and parties.
