Rick Pitino, Bobby Petrino Reunion Gets Lampooned
The internet is having a field day with reports on Wednesday that Louisville is going to rehire football coach Bobby Petrino and pair him again with men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino.
Petrino and Pitino were both at Louisville from 2003-06 and have since been embroiled in salacious sex scandals. Pitino admitted in 2010 to an illicit affair with a woman named Karen Sypher that included a romp on the floor of an Italian restaurant while Petrino was fired at Arkansas in 2012 after a motorcycle crash led to the revelation he was having an affair with an employee of the football office named Jessica Dorrell.
Here is some of Twitter’s best lampooning of the reunion so far:

Between Petrino and Pitino, you’re not gonna wanna do a blacklight test at the Louisville athletic department offices.

Petrino and Pitino? Really? Can’t spell adultery without UL.

We hope athletic director Tom Jurich has a good sense of humor.
