With Louisville's victory over Michigan Monday night to win the men's NCAA basektball tournament, it's time for the coach to be true to his word. Rick Pitino earlier pledged that he would get a tattoo if his team won the championship. They won.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene.

With Louisville's victory over Michigan last night to win the NCAA tournament, it's time to make good on some promises. Louisville players have suggestions for their coach, Rick Pitino, who pledged to get a tattoo if they won. Player Shane Bohannon thinks his name should be tattooed on Pitino's body. Another player suggests the lower back is the best location. Pitino's family seems too stunned to make suggestions. One son said, he would have killed us if we got a tattoo.

It's MORNING EDITION.
