Tubby Smith is out as Minnesota head coach. The news broke around 11:30 a.m. Monday off a CBS Sports report by Jeff Goodman.
Fans and writers alike took to Twitter to share their opinions — and there are a lot of opinions.

Disappointing that 6 seasons after I was so excited for the Tubby hire I am just as excited for his firing#Gophers

So Minnesota is really firing Tubby?Let me know how that works out for you.#Gophers

All the national media bewildered by Tubby Smith firing clearly have not paid attention to the #Gophers this year. Terrribly coached team.

They should just make Tyus Jones’ dad the coach of the #Gophers so he comes here

I would think Teague has someone “waiting in the wings” to make the move…will be very interesting to see who they turn to next. #Gophers

I’d also like to note that the Minnesota job is one of the most overrated jobs in the country.

I can’t believe Tubby Smith got fired. It’s over for Minnesota. I don’t know who they thought they were to have the audacity… I’m shocked.

Tubby Smith is a really good man, but Minnesota was mediocre in his tenure. New Gophers AD Norwood Teague doesn’t want to be mediocre.
