Louisville coach Rick Pitino had a rare Saturday off in February and decided to travel to Minnesota to watch his son's team play host to Indiana. Richard Pitino is the head coach of the Gophers.
Rick Pitino was photographed at the game sitting next to a young man wearing a chicken suit. Turns out, the young man is Pitino's other son, Ryan, who apparently lost a bet, thus the awkward getup.
Rick Pitino just confirmed via text that this is his son in the chicken suit. Lost a bet. Hope it was worth it! pic.twitter.com/sUdSBx3e4X— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) February 9, 2014
This isn't the first time Rick Pitino has taken in a Minnesota game this season and it's not the first awkward picture to emerge from a trip north.
