Pitino certainly is no offensive coach, but his defenses are routinely in the top 5 in the country. It helps to have length, but his schemes are what make the matchup zone so tough to attack. So while I wouldn't turn to Pitino for a late game offensive play, to say he doesn't coach really shortchanges the impact he has on defense.

While true, his teams feature length and depth, he also develops a bunch of players in his system: Williams, Muhammad, Smith, etc.
