Rick Pitino Sits Next to a Kid in a Chicken Suit at Minnesota Game

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIDecember 31, 2016

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino attended Minnesota's home game against the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday to cheer on his son, Richard, who is the head coach for the Golden Gophers.

Maybe Pitino should have gotten a box seat.

For some reason, Pitino was sitting directly next to a kid that was casually wearing a chicken costume. According to the broadcast on the Big Ten Network, the kid in the costume is actually Pitino's son, making this an even more confusing situation.

Thanks to Nebraska head coach Tim Miles for posting the picture on Twitter.
