Twitter comments lead to Idaho player’s suspension
Twitter comments critical of the Idaho basketball coach have led
to the indefinite suspension of the team’s second-leading
Coach Don Verlin suspended Kashif Watson on Friday without an
explanation, other than to say it was for conduct detrimental to
the program. Watson on his Twitter account wrote Friday that he was
in trouble for his Twitter comments.
Previously, Watson wrote after losses that he didn’t know how
the team was supposed to win with Verlin coaching, and questioned
the coach’s desire to win.
Watson will miss Saturday’s game against Hawaii, but the
suspension will be reviewed before the Western Athletic Conference
Watson has averaged 10.7 points for the Vandals, who are 14-15
overall and 5-10 in the WAC.
