ATLANTA (AP) — Boeheim 'just a cheap guy'
Rick Pitino says he knows why Jim Boeheim has coached for so long: He's cheap.
Pitino, who was hired by Boeheim as an assistant at Syracuse in 1976, has since had four college head coaching jobs and also coached the NBA's Knicks and Celtics while Boeheim has remained at Syracuse.
Pitino says the 68-year-old Boeheim is saving his pennies.
"Jim is coaching a long time because he's extremely frugal," Pitino said with a grin Thursday. "He's just a cheap guy that money means everything to him and he's going to coach till he's 90 and hoard away every penny he's ever made."
