Twitter Does Not Approve of FIU Hiring Ron Turner

Ron Turner's Wikipedia page surely got a traffic spike this morning as FIU Golden Panthers fans tried to figure who the hell exactly the team had hired as their new coach.

Yes, after the surprise firing of Mario Cristobal, Athletic Director Pete Garcia has chose Ron Turner, a man with a former stint as the head coach of Illinois and a string of OC and QB coaching gigs in college and the NFL, as the team's new coach.

Twitter is not impressed.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
