Earlier on Thursday, the Kentucky Wildcats fired offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson. This came after reports that he and head coach Mark Stoops never had a great relationship.

It didn’t take long for people to start speaking out about the firing. One person that didn’t seem to like the firing was quarterback Patrick Towles, who tweeted out a pretty strange pair of emojis.
A fan asked Towles, who announced his intentions to transfer earlier this year, about it possibly meaning Dawson was a “sacrificial lamb.” Towles confirmed that pretty quickly.
This certainly wasn’t a pretty firing and it will probably only get uglier. If there is one thing the Wildcats didn’t need right now, it was this.
