Leach Bans Cougars From Tweeting

Just one week after players were instructed by a professional about the dangers of social media, Twitter is no more for the Washington State football team. The decision was made Tuesday, coach Mike Leach said, to ban his players from the social media site effective immediately. “Quite frankly, if after today you see anything on Twitter from our team,” Leach said, “and I don’t care if it says, ‘I love life,’ I would like to see it because I will suspend them.” So, what prompted this decision? “Because I decided to, that’s what prompted that,” Leach said/Christian Caple, SR.

Question: Did WSU football coach Mike Leach go too far in banning his players from tweeting?
