Between Mike Gundy’s #AskGundy sessions, Paul Johnson working out his managers, Bret Bielema’s sparring sessions with disgruntled Wisconsin fans and Art Briles’ liberal use of the letter z, it’s been a very entertaining offseason for head coaches on Twitter.
As Oregon State head coach Mike Riley has proven, Twitter can also be informative. On Monday, Riley tweeted where each of his assistants is recruiting. If a reporter had asked a head coach where his assistants would be recruiting, approximately 124 could curtly decline to answer, and Riley has put it out there for anyone to see. These tweets will fire up the fan base and give a subtle nod in the “you know who you are” fashion to the high school coaches and recruits in California, Arizona and Texas that each Beavers assistant will visit in their time on the road.
To Riley, Gundy, Johnson, Bielema and Briles, we say good work to all of you; with your help, August will be here before we know it.
