Cardale Jones Defends Former Offensive Coordinator Tom Herman On Twitter

Cardale Jones stood up for his former offensive coordinator Tom Herman last night.

Jones defended Herman to FS1's Nick Wright, who criticized Herman, the new Texas head coach, in a series of tweets.

Herman and Wright have a history together. He appeared on Wright's radio show in Houston in January 2016 and got into a contentious exchange over reporting Wright and then-partner John Lopez did regarding the transfer of Kyle Allen to Houston.

This week, Herman's wife and Wright also went at it briefly on Twitter. Then came Wright's tweets and Jones' response.

That was a short-lived Twitter "beef" but it is pretty clear the amount of respect Jones still has for his former coach.
