Gophers Road Trip Stops in Mankato

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Gopher Road Trip made a stop in Mankato today giving local fans a chance to meet and talk with several of the University's head coaches including the newest edition of the staff, men's head basketball coach Richard Pitino. This morning's event was held at the Mankato City Center Hotel. The idea behind the tour is to get the coaches up close and personal with more of the state's fans and so far, Gopher Athletic Director Norwood Teague says they have been well received.

Pitino says he is proud to have had the opportunity to have learned from guys like his dad, Rick Pitino, and Billy Donavan and says he is looking forward to bring an exciting brand of basketball to Williams Arena.
