Rick Pitino said Tues. that he won’t coach past the 2016-2017 season when his current contract ends at Louisville.

“When you are 59, you’re pragmatic that you don’t have a whole lot of years left,” Pitino said at a news conference before the No. 4 Cardinals play No. 12 Georgetown on Wednesday. “My contract’s going to run out in 2017. I’m not training any longer after that.”

The former Providence and Kentucky coach has led the Cardinals to a 12-0 record so far this season. NFL odds

Louisville’s Athletic Association granted Pitino, the sole men’s coach to steer 3 different programs to the final Four, a four-year contract extension in August. He’ll make $3 million in base income till the end of the 2013 season, followed by $3.9 million a year.

Pitino failed to use the word ‘retire’, but has said in the past that Louisville would be his last coaching stop. He’s 253-96 in his 11th season at Louisville, which reached the final Four in 2005.

The Cardinals will host the Hoyas in their Big East Conference opener before traveling to face rival and No. Three Kentucky on Sat..

Pitino announced Louisville has not started preparing for Kentucky.

“One thing I’ve learned how to do with my age, I really don’t look ahead,” said Pitino, who went 219-50 in 8 seasons at Kentucky and won the 1996 national championship. “For years, I’ve been evangelizing the valuable present and having to always subscribe to it.”

Senior guard Chris Smith echoed his coach. NFL spreads

“We haven’t discussed Kentucky one time yet, and we’re going to keep it like that until we come out with a W tomorrow,” he said.
