Half Of College Football Head Coaches Utilizing Twitter, But Not Spaz

Twitter, schmitter. Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Coachingsearch.com recently found that over 50 percent of Division I-A college football head coaches were using Twitter. Of the 300 million Twitter users, 61 are college head coaches using the social media platform to spread the word and better market their programs.

When reached for comment, Spaz simply replied: "Twitter, schmitter"

The head coaches with the most Twitter followers included LSU's Les Miles, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly, Washington's Steve Sarkisian, Nebraska's Bo Pelini and Mississippi State's Dan Mullen.

From the ACC, Miami's Al Golden (@GoldenAl) has the most followers with 16,354. Clemson's Dabo Swinney (@CoachSwinney) came in second with 13,798, while @RandyEdsall finished third with 12,238. The rest of the ACC coaches represented on the list include @CoachFedora (10,679), @CoachMikeLondon (7,286) and @DavidCutcliffe (4,620).

Now while our A.D. might not appreciate the give-and-take of Twitter, shouldn't Spaz at least give this thing a shot to help market himself and the program a little better?

Boston College basketball coach Steve Donahue has successfully leveraged the social media platform to build some buzz around Eagles hoops and keep fans informed on what's going on with the team. Donahue's Twitter account -- @Coach_Donahue -- has nearly 2,300 followers.

We would all be better humans if Coach York joined the Twitter ranks and dropped knowledge on us all. Short of that, shouldn't the second best BC coach of the last 15 years utilize the social media platform to better market himself and the program. I mean, it couldn't hurt, right? What's there to lose?
