Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino’s official twitter account drew scrutiny early Thursday morning after the account “liked” a tweet of questionable subject matter.

The University released the following statement regarding the incident:

“I was alerted this morning that there was inappropriate material on my official Twitter account. While the account is generally under my supervision, there are multiple people, and possibly an unauthorized user who have access to my account. We’ve always taken the appropriate steps to make sure our official social media accounts are secure and are we taking measures to make sure this situation never happens again.”
