Former Pitt Player Bashes Head Coach Kevin Stallings On Twitter

Former Pitt player LeVance Fields was not happy with the Panthers' performance last night and he took to Twitter to let everyone know.

The Pittsburgh Panthers got ran out of the gym on Tuesday night, losing 106-51 to the No. 13 ranked Louisville Cardinals. It was ugly, to say the least. At the half it was 51-18, and the Panthers looked like they had forgotten how to play basketball most of the night. They shot just 25 percent from the field and were out-rebounded by the Cardinals 48-26. Louisville is pretty good this year, but to lose by 55 at home is...rough.

Pitt fans were understandably upset, but probably none more so than former Pitt point guard LeVance Fields, who went off this morning on Twitter, placing most of the blame on Panthers' first-year head coach Kevin Stallings.

Brandin Knight—who apparently should've gotten the head coaching job according to Fields—has been on the Pit coaching staff since 2006, and served as assistant coach from 2008-2016. In 2016 he took an assistant coaching with Rutgers.

The Panthers are 12-8 on the year, and 1-6 in ACC play.
