If you hadn’t already heard, disgraced former Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino has a new gig as the head coach of Panathinaikos in the Greek Basket League and the EuroLeague.

He arrived in Greece earlier this week and shared his excitement for the new opportunity.

“I have signed with Panathinaikos and I am ready for the challenge,” Pitino told Eurohoops.net. “… I’m excited to be here. It’s the first time in 41 years as a coach that I will take up a team in the middle of the season.”

Only, you’d never know he was super excited about this opportunity if all you saw was his team photo.

In fact, the photo Panathinaikos used on its official team page is downright terrifying.

Time to turn that frown upside down, mister!

After all, Pitino has literally millions of reasons to be happy, if money in fact did buy such a thing.
