In brief: Possibly
Can be related to the bypass surgery, especially if your leg veins were used for the bypass .
.. But if persists or worsens, or if your leg is swollen, should get checked by your cardiologist or cardiac surgeon ...

In brief: No
Deep leg pain should really not be there after bypass surgery.
However, since different people's pain tolerance is different, I am not sure what you mean by "deep leg pain", some pain is expected for up to a few weeks. If the leg is red or swollen, it is time for your surgeon to see and evaluate it.
