Louisville University basketball coach Rick Pitino had a rough off season. In August, he held a “defiantly weird press conference” to address an “extortion-affair-abortion fiasco,” according to ESPN.com.
It seems Pitino is happy with how his PR counsel handled the situation. He recently bought Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein a $50,000 Lexus convertible. The car was given to Klein as a gift for his 50th birthday on November 21st. “I was shocked then, and I’m still shocked,” Klein told FoxSports.com.
Now that is an example of taking care of your PR people.
