I meant 4 overall. He won one, Tubby won the next year after he left(98), I think Pitino would have won that as well. Pitino also lost an OT final to Arizona while he was there. I think 2 additional titles in the last 9 years would not have been a stretch had Pitino stayed.
Pitino had set up the UK for one of the great all-time runs. They played in three championship games in a row(96-98) and won two of them and only lost in OT to a loaded Arizona team.
Pitino's biggest mistake was leaving UK.
