Legendary basketball coach Rick Pitino is taking a shot at renting his South Florida mansion for $90,000 a month.

Pitino also has tried in recent years to sell his 9,700-square-foot home on Indian Creek Island, just north of Miami Beach.

Now available for $23.9 million, down from his $25.9 million asking price in 2016, his is the only residence on exclusive Indian Creek Island listed for sale or rent.

The 1.2-acre estate has 118 feet of water frontage, a resort-style swimming pool and pool lounge, and an outdoor kitchen. It also comes with an expansive boat dock and a four-car garage.

The Mediterranean-style house has eight bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms. It was enlarged and remodeled in 2016.

Interior features include living rooms on both the first and second floors, a chef’s kitchen, formal dining room and family room. A gym and a master suite with an office are upstairs.

Pitino, 66, sold another South Florida home in Bal Harbour for $3.3 million in 2017 after initially listing it for $4.15 million.

His career as a college basketball coach ended in 2017 when the University of Louisville fired him after an investigation into bribery of recruited players. He was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Pitino might someday find a coaching job in the National Basketball Association. He has coached two NBA teams, the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics. [Realtor.com]Mike Seemuth
