Twitter reacts to Houston hiring Major Applewhite, not Lane Kiffin
Moments ago, Houston officially named offensive coordinator and former Texas quarterback Major Applewhite as its next head coach.
Not Lane Kiffin, as earlier “reports” had indicated.
There has been quite the build up to this point, so as you can imagine, Twitter went nuts when the news broke. Here’s a glance at the reaction:
Lane Kiffin is going to be next football coach at Houston.

Damn, Houston somehow topped USC in leaving Lane Kiffin before he even got to the airport.

Major Applewhite named HC at Houston; Lane Kiffin gets snubbed. Good or bad for Alabama football. Discuss … #RollTide

Lane Kiffin is probably reluctantly returning his new Brock Osweiler jersey somewhere in The Galleria right now

Message to #USF: if it comes down to a choice between Charlie Strong and Lane Kiffin; CHOOSE CHARLIE STRONG.

Lane Kiffin and Dave Aranda at coordinators would make hiring Coach O look GENIUS.
