Vitale, quien regresó a la cabina de transmisión este mes luego de anunciar su diagnóstico de cáncer en octubre, took to Twitter on Friday to call out Kelly and Lincoln Riley for their decisions to move on to different college football programs.
“Brian Kelly & Lincoln Riley leaving [Nuestra dama] & [Oklahoma] / wonder how can u just walk away from players that gave heart/soul/blood to at the most vital time of the year,” el escribio. “Yes to some $ $ $ count more than what is right / it wasn’t like they were starving making millions.”
Vitale drove his point home, seemingly saying money was the driving cause for the departures.
“Coaches with ethics ala Jay Wright, Tom Izzo, Coach K, Mark Few & many others would never check out on their TEAMS for $ $ $ with a chance for glory after a super year,” he said in another tweet. “How can Brian Kelly give [Nuestra dama] players a 3 min talk after they busted their guts for him? For him easy $ $ .”
They join Alabama’s Nick Saban as the top three highest-paid college football coaches.
