LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- The coach of the University of Kentucky's women's basketball team is moving into a $2 million home once owned by former UK men's basketball coach Rick Pitino.

Matthew Mitchell and his wife, Jenna, purchased the house earlier this month, from a couple who had owned it since 2003.

Pitino, now coach of the University of Louisville men's basketball team, built the house in 1989. It is close to the University of Kentucky campus.

When Pitino owned the house, it had six bedrooms and eight baths, along with a pool and sauna.

Mitchell told the Lexington Herald-Leader he and his wife liked the house, because it was close to campus and had been completely remodeled.

Pitino coached at UK until 1997. When the house was under construction, the site became a tourist attraction. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
