And if a photo of a male women’s college basketball coach getting all handsy with a female women’s basketball coach’s posterior wasn’t newsworthy enough, the manner in which Auriemma explained the butt-pat following the game adds an additional layer of amusement to the already-excellent story.   As reported by the Connecticut Post’s Rich Elliott (via The Dagger): “She was staring at my butt and she was commenting on it and I said, ‘Really?
