Gophers players react on Twitter to hiring of P.J. Fleck

When Tracy Claeys was fired as head coach of the Minnesota Gophers, many players took to social media to voice their displeasure.

Minnesota acted swiftly in getting his replacement, signing P.J. Fleck to a five-year contract.

With the news breaking, some players took to Twitter to express their feelings. Fleck would meet with the team — and video conference with those not in town. We’re not privvy to the conversation but based on his first press conference, we’re pretty sure Fleck brought a lot of energy to the discussion.

Judging by the tweets which followed, it sure seems like a lot of players are buying in to what Fleck is selling. Here’s some of the reaction we found from players on Twitter.
