When you think of Twitter, you probably think of snide comments, misspelled insults, and 140-character micro-rants. But in the case of former Tennessee basketball assistant Tony Jones, Twitter was his outlet to show a little class as he held the door open — figuratively — for new head coach Cuonzo Martin:
Congrats to Cuonzo Martin a very good person and a solid basketball coach.
Vol Nation give him time he will do a great job.
Considering the amount of hand-wringing in the aforementioned Vol Nation over Martin’s hiring, Jones’ comments were probably much appreciated by the new coach.
Jones served as Tennessee’s interim coach during Bruce Pearl’s 8-game suspension last season, going 5-3 over that stretch.
But not all of Jones tweets are of the lovey-dovey variety. In case you’re wondering who UT’s coaches blame for ratting out their barbecue to the NCAA, check this posting from last Friday… moments after Kentucky’s victory over Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament.
Never thought I (would) say it Great Job Cal. Have a good trip back to Columbus Thad.
