After reports that Missouri hired Miami Hurricanes’ men’s basketball coach Frank Haith surfaced online late Sunday night, Tiger basketball fans began to react on twitter with sometimes harsh words about the potential hire. Kim English posted a tweet in response to the criticism around midnight:
EnglishScope24: Wow. Awfully Disappointed in the response that some Mizzou fans are giving.
J.T. Tiller also responded to tweets asking him about the new coach. When Kansas City sports radio host Steven St. John tweeted at Tiller asking him what he thought of the new coach, Tiller responded that he doesn’t know Haith. He then tweeted:
Yung Tiller: There’s always two sides to a story. Don’t down the new coach. He may be a great hire. Time will tell.
