Pitino gets con­tract ex­ten­sion

Los Angeles Times - - THE DAY IN SPORTS -

Louisville has ex­tended Coach Rick Pitino’s con­tract four years through the 2025-26 sea­son.

Pitino, 62, is the first coach to win NCAA ti­tles at two schools, with Louisville in 2013 and Ken­tucky in 1996. He is 368-126 in 14 sea­sons at Louisville and 722254 in 30 sea­sons over­all.

The pro­posed river­front foot­ball sta­dium in St. Louis al­ready has cost tax­pay­ers $3 mil­lion, ac­cord­ing to a news­pa­per re­port.

The St. Louis Post-Dis­patch re­ported that that fig­ure is based on the lat­est in­voices re­leased this week from fi­nanc­ing ad­vi­sors, rail­road track en­gi­neers, con­tract at­tor­neys and man­age­ment.

The Rams are year-to-year on their lease for the Ed­ward Jones Dome and could leave as early as 2016, mean­ing the up­com­ing NFL sea­son could be their last in St. Louis.

Ari­zona Car­di­nals quar­ter­back Car­son Palmer re­turned to full prac­tice, com­ing back from a torn an­te­rior col­lat­eral lig­a­ment that ended his sea­son last Novem­ber. He took snaps and made throws in 11on-11 drills Tues­day, the first day of the team’s three­day June mini-camp.

The Car­di­nals went 11-5 last sea­son and made the play­offs, but with Palmer as the starter they were 6-0. The knee in­jury came in a non-con­tact sit­u­a­tion in the fourth quar­ter of a home game against the Rams.

Oak­land Raiders quar­ter­back Derek Carr was a full par­tic­i­pant in prac­tice Tues­day for the first time since April. An in­jury to the ring fin­ger on his throw­ing hand had kept him out of ac­tion.
