With the hiring of Butler head basketball coach Chris Holtmann by Ohio State, the world of Twitter got scrambling. Fans, media, former colleagues and former players all chimed in — and not surprisingly, it was colorful.
Holtmann, 45, was the head coach at Gardner-Webb in South Carolina before moving to Butler as an assistant in 2013. By 2014 he was the head coach and went 70-31 in three seasons with three NCAA tournament appearances before being hired by the Buckeyes.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter so far:
Holtmann didn't waste much time in getting a statement out to fans of both schools:
