LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- David White, a spokesperson for Harvest Homecoming, says Rick Pitino has been released from his responsibilities as the Master of Ceremonies at this year's Harvest Homecoming Parade.

The parade, which is scheduled to be held on Oct. 7 at 12 p.m., is the official kick-off to New Albany's annual Harvest Homecoming Festival.

White says the decision to release Pitino from the responsibility was done out of respect for both Pitino himself and University of Louisville Cardinals fans.
