Sean Miller, King of The Pac-12 Tweeters

Posted By on Mon, Aug 19, 2013 at 2:30 PM

With an amazing recruiting class coming in for this season, and likely another big one shaping up for the following year, University of Arizona men's basketball coach Sean Miller is slowly but surely getting some of us Tucsonans to forget how to spell Olson.

But Miller is doing it more than just on the recruiting trail, or on the court itself during the regular season. He's also a master tweeter, according to The Sporting News.

Miller checks it at No. 9 on the top 10 'Twitter Bunch,' as SN put it (complete with a Brady Bunch knockoff graphic that for some reason only shows the top five guys.

No. 1 on the list, not surprisingly, is uber-slick John Calipari, who has more than 1.2 million followers. He is considered 'five-star caliber,' which I guess makess him a Kardashian or something.

Miller is given credit for his diversity of tweets, including reviewing Kendrick Lamar lyrics. So, there's that.

ASU's Herb Sendek, amazingly, is considered the second-best tweeting Pac-12 hoops coach, though his 6,800 or so followers is far behind the 16,980 that Miller had as of 1 p.m. today.
