Louisville coach Rick Pitino is apparently not a fan of Kevin Stallings.

The Louisville Courier Journal reports media personality John Ramsey shared Pitino’s opinion of the University of Pittsburgh basketball coach in a tweet.

Pitino comment comes in reaction to Stallings’ heckling a fan during Pitt’s 77-51 ACC loss to Louisville on Tuesday.

Audio from the sideline appeared to catch Stallings yelling over to a Louisville fan: “At least we don’t pay our guys $100,000.”

Stallings was referencing an FBI investigation, in which Louisville is being probed for allegedly paying a recruit — later indentified as five-star recruit Brian Bowen — to sign with the school.

Pitino ended up losing his job, along with two Louisville assistants and then-athletic director Tom Jurich.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
