As the head coach of Texas, reading mentions after a season-opening loss could be considered hazardous for your health.
In the case of Longhorns head coach Tom Herman, life might improve without the Twitter app.
Herman said Thursday he deleted the app from his phone, according to the Dallas Morning News.
On Monday, Herman said the atmosphere at the Texas facility “was like a funeral home.” He added, “If it doesn’t matter, then you don’t care.”
At 7-7, hashtags such as #FireTomHerman and other variations of the same message began cropping up after Maryland beat the Longhorns for the second straight year in the season opener.
For the unindoctrinated, social media is not known for level-headed civil discourse.
The handle — @CoachTomHerman — was last active August 28, when he retweeted a graphic from @InsideTexas.
Herman has 110,000 followers.
