Former coach, OU player have Twitter war

Dillon Overton and Sunny Golloway aren’t parting the University of Oklahoma on the best of terms.

The two had a salty Twitter exchange Sunday into Monday. Overton fired first.

“All the crap I went through this year/season... But my team helped me through it. Good luck with the new coach boys,” he tweeted.

Then he turned his attention to his former coach, who has taken the head coaching job at Auburn.

“Thanks for being two faced the entire time I knew you. Lied to our whole team and never had any of our backs,” he said, adding, “The program made me better... which is something you couldn’t do. I hope all the talking behind my back to my teammates comes back to you in some way. You really disappointed me and all my teammates. Good luck at Auburn.

Golloway responded in a tweet that was later taken down: “I’m sorry you feel this way and chose to do this Dillon.”

Overton will skip his senior season at OU after being drafted in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft by Oakland. A couple independent reports on Monday said that Overton has come to terms on a contract with the A’s.
