Fired University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino recently sold his smallish Bal Harbour house and re-listed his huge Indian Creek crib for sale.

Pitino, 65, has had time to wheel-and-deal on the South Florida real estate market since October, when the Kentucky school canned him when his program ended up at the heart of yet another college sports scandal.

It involved bribes allegedly paid by Adidas sportswear maker to the families of high-level recruits.

Pitino claimed he didn’t know anything about it and is suing the university for breach of contract.

But that caper followed another where Pitino’s program alleged supplied strippers for recruits visiting the campus.

With time on his hands despite rumors he is a candidate to take over head coaching duties for the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, Pitino’s been active in the local real estate game.

In late November, Miami-Dade County records show, Pitino sold his weekend home at 177 Bal Cross Drive, a long three-point shot away from the Bal Harbour Shops.
