A's pick blasts his college coach on Twitter
Dillon Overton, a lefty pitcher drafted by Oakland in the second round, unleashed a Twitter barrage against his college coach at Oklahoma. The coach, Sunny Golloway, just left the Sooners for Auburn.
After baseball coach Sunny Golloway left Oklahoma for Auburn, Sooners pitcher Dillon Overton didn’t exactly wish him well.
The Oakland Athletics' second-round pick ripped Golloway on Twitter, first in a general tweet and then with three aimed directly at his former coach.
@coach_G29 thanks for being two faced the entire time I knew you. Lied to our whole team and never had any of our backs. The program made me— Dillon Overton_13 (@OvertonDillon) June 17, 2013
@coach_G29 better...which is something you couldn't do. I hope all the talking behind my back to my teammates comes back to you in some way— Dillon Overton_13 (@OvertonDillon) June 17, 2013
@coach_G29 ...You really disappointed me and all my teammates. Good luck at Auburn— Dillon Overton_13 (@OvertonDillon) June 17, 2013
Golloway responded on Twitter, writing, "I'm sorry you feel this way and chose to do this Dillon." That post was later deleted.
A junior left-hander, Overton went 9-3 with a 3.02 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 92 1/3 innings before being drafted 63rd overall by Oakland.
Golloway led the Sooners to four super regionals and one College World Series appearance in nine seasons. He said he took the Auburn job because of the program's history, adding that he wanted to coach in "the top baseball conference in America."
