(LEX 18) — What's the deal with Pitino's take on the governor's race? Former Kentucky and Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino offered a sly, but biting Tweet on the governor's race.
Pitino, who no longer lives in the Bluegrass, offered a simple .gif in response to the Gov. Bevin's contested defeat.
The coach tweeted a .gif of comedian Jerry Seinfeld eating popcorn with the caption, "That's a shame."
Pitino long has no qualms about expressing his disdain for the governor, even insinuating that Bevin had a hand in his firing from the University of Louisville following a recruitment scandal involving Adidas athletic wear.
