Following the University of Minnesota’s decision to fire head football coach Tracy Claeys on Tuesday, players and former players reacted on social media.

The decision comes after a sexual assault investigation that led to 10 Gophers players being suspended and a team boycott publicly supported by Claeys. On Dec. 15, 2016, Claeys tweeted "Have never been more proud of our kids. I respect their rights & support their effort to make a better world." 

One of the 10 suspended players, Ray Buford calls Claeys being fired, “straight up bull.”
