Cardinals coach keeps promise, gets 'L' tattoo

  •  

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rick Pitino is now inked up.

The Louisville coach followed through Friday on his promise to get a tattoo if the Cardinals won the NCAA championship, adorning his left shoulder blade with the school's old-English `L' emblem in red. He got it done at Tattoo Salvation, a parlor east of campus, and the emblem is perpendicularly surrounded by the words `2013 NCAA champions, 35-5.'

Athletic department spokesman Kenny Klein tweeted pictures of a topless Pitino with the tattoo on his back and a close-up of the finished product. The NCAA championship trophy was nearby.

The 60-year-old Pitino revealed the design earlier in the week and his plans to get it done before the Kentucky Derby on May 4. He's part owner of Goldencents, considered a strong Derby contender.
