Rick Pitino is now on Twitter. The former Louisville men's basketball coach is already making waves for what was written in his Twitter biography, too.

The bio for the former Cardinals' coach reads as follows:

"Elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. Winner of two National Championships & the only coach to take three different schools to the Final Four."

Of course, that second national championship Pitino is talking about was vacated by the NCAA. It's not ridiculous for him to still call himself a two-time national champion, though.

What is a little ridiculous is the claim that he's the only coach to take three schools to the Final Four. Kentucky head coach John Calipari has also done that, also he also had a couple of them vacated by the NCAA.

The Kentucky-Louisville rivalry never stops.
