UPDATE: Cobb has apparently deleted his account.

Gov. Matt Bevin announced new members of the University of Louisville board of trustees on Tuesday. One, judging by his tweets, is not a fan of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.

Doug Cobb, the entrepreneur in residence at Chrysalis Ventures, a Louisville investment fund, used his twitter account back in February to criticize Pitino over the school’s basketball scandal. (To be fair, Cobb was not the only one.)

Here is the first tweet in a series of slams.

Here’s the second.

Three’s a charm.

Cobb is obviously a sports and has strong opinions.

Remember when Louisville lost to UC Santa Barbara on a walk-off grand slam home run in the Super Regionals?

This could be interesting.
