Matt Scott did not approve of Arizona's dismissal of Rich Rodriguez. In fact, the former Wildcats' quarterback was irate, saying the school looks stupid while asking why basketball coach Sean Miller still has a job.

Scott is a former three-star recruit from California who played at Arizona from 2008-12. He appeared in 22 games as a reserve from 2009-10 before taking a medical redshirt in 2011 and earning in the starting job as a fifth-year senior in 2012, his lone season playing for Rodriguez, who arrived in December 2011.
After news broke of Rodriguez's dismissal on Tuesday night, Scott took to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

"How you gonna fire @CoachRodAZ over a false story and say "we wanted to reaffirm our commitment to our values" and your not gonna fire Miller for paying players?" he tweeted. "Smh yall look stupid."
There's a lot to unpack here.
The "false story" he's referring to is a sexual harassment allegation against Rodriguez and subsequent investigation that found no wrongdoing by the sixth-year head coach. In a statement, Rodriguez said he fully cooperated with the investigation and voluntarily took — and passed — a lie detector test.
The whopper comes in the latter half of the tweet when Scott wonders why head men's basketball coach Sean Miller wasn't fired for his program's role in the adidas college basketball scandal. As of now, no evidence suggests Miller led or participated in any activity that broke NCAA or federal laws. While the investigation is still ongoing and NCAA or federal charges could come against Miller, nothing currently shows that Miller paid players, as Scott suggests.
