Embattled Texas basketball coach Rick Barnes was given notice this weekend that he was fired from his head coaching position.
Immediately, former players TJ Ford & Kevin Durant took to Twitter & Instagram to show their gratitude and appreciation for the 17-year coach of the Longhorns.
I learned a lot from this guy, was much more than a coach but a father figure! Love you, Thank you pic.twitter.com/gN2ahkmLFP
