Nebraska's Tim Miles Being Criticized For This Tweet About Tubby Smith

Nebraska men's basketball coach Tim Miles is currently being criticized for a tweet he posted this morning regarding Tubby Smith. 

Smith, 64, recently agreed to become Memphis' new head coach. It's Smith's six college head coaching position and his third since the 2012-13 season. 

Miles tweeted: "Tubby rents."

This might not have been intended as a shot, but it's pretty uncommon for any college coach to talk like this about another one. Unsurprisingly, most people aren't happy with the tweet. 

">@CoachMiles - Incredibly unprofessional. This is going to come back to bite you.

Miles, meanwhile, has been at Nebraska since 2012. He's had five jobs - none longer than six years - since the 1990s.
