Though his tweets are often few and far between, men’s basketball head coach Mike Brey (@NDMikeBrey) made some serious waves in the Twittersphere on Friday.
Me and my dawg 2 Chainz twitter.com/NDMikeBrey/sta…
— Mike Brey (@NDMikeBrey) August 10, 2012
Georgia rapper 2 Chainz was in the area last week for a concert at the Century Center, and evidently, Coach Brey ran into him during his time in South Bend.
Following Brey’s tweet, which got more than 300 retweets and nearly 90 favorites, Myron Metcalf posted an interesting story about the connection between basketball and hip-hop on the ESPN.com College Basketball Nation blog.
Much of the article is focused on the Irish coach, even asking, “Is Brey working on a new track for an upcoming album? Does 2 Chainz have remaining eligibility and an unstoppable crossover?”
While we’re not sure if they became “dawgs” while waiting at the airport, or if there is in fact, a previous connection between Brey and 2 Chainz, one thing is certain – our Twitter streams would all be more interesting if Coach Brey starts tweeting on a regular basis.
