He's the 4th most popular coach on twitter! Saw this on ESPN and thought I'd share.
For those that don't want to click the link, the top 5 coaches in the country (by twitter followers)
1) Les Miles - 87,513
2) Brian Kelly - 81,878
3) Mark Richt - 55,224
4) CBJ - Don't know if it's his total followers, but it said he gained 52,704 followers since Dec 7th.
5) Steve Sarkisian - 43,235
I know it doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot, but I do think it's pretty cool to see him that popular already after CDD's lack of social media interaction.
Les Miles has gained over 87,000 followers on Twitter, making him the most popular college football coach on the social media network, according to a study conducted by USA Today.
Nice find. +1. The story's count is even a little old, Coach Jomes is currently (as of this a.m) at 53.1K.
As of 4:50 pm today he has 53,509.
Richt is going down.

CBJ is gaining pretty fast.
I wonder how many are Cincy fans
About 10k were there before he accepted ut but I'm sure most of them unfollowed I know I would
I think it is cool and does say something about this fan base. Recruits nowadays love twitter so to know that our coach is on there tweeting and has a huge following helps Butch relate to the recruits.
He's got 54,169 today and still gaining.
I think it's very cool. This fan base should be proud of the fact that we've stayed passionate through the worst era of UT football ever. We keep showing up. We've taken it on the chin a lot and haven't lost faith.
There's really something to be said for that, and I don't think many fan bases would have reacted as we have.
This place has heart and toughness like almost nowhere else.
I agree and you can also tell that this fanbase is so ready to win again.
I know when he was hired I went to his account followed and told him good luck-that was the old account.
As soon as the @utcoachjones came up I started to follow that one as well.
I would say the majority are his I know he was so hot for a few days they shut it down due to all the activity and movement.
lots of good tweets, not in the cubbie rucker way but good nuggets
He's up to 54,311 and climbing.
