Louisville Coach Getting Inked After National Title, Twitter Had Ideas

Just after Louisville received the national championship trophy, Rick Pitino told Jim Nantz of CBS his plans for memorializing his team's 82-76 win over Michigan in the 2013 NCAA Tournament final.

"They said if you win the national championship, coach, you are getting a tattoo. I said, 'Hell yes'" Pitino said. "I'm getting a tattoo!"

Quickly after, Twitter blew up with fans tattoo ideas for Pitino with hashtags such as #PitinoTattoo and #RickPitinoTattooIdeas.

"I think that was our biggest motivation, was to get Coach P a tattoo," Louisville point guard Peyton Siva told reporters after the game, via ASAP Sports.

He should get a flaming basketball on his arm.
