Toledo coach implies Illinois is a dead-end job

Toledo's director of track and field and cross country, Kevin Hadsell, took to twitter this morning to issue a personal statement on Tim Beckman's decision to leave Toledo for the head coaching job at Illinois.

At 8:23 this morning @Rocketcoach70 said "Beck: Trust me, you are better than Illinois. I almost left for SEC. I stayed & we can be Top-15 next year. Keep rolling! Finish this!"

To top it off, he tweeted again six minutes later saying "You couldn't pay me enough $ to take certain jobs in big conferences. Some schools are dead-end jobs in some sports. Think two moves ahead."

Toledo, control your track coach. 

9:30 Update> He's at it again...he has now tweeted, "To be clear on my tweets. I have the utmost respect for Beck. I think he's a great coach and is better than Illinois."

Toledo, you have a problem on your hands. 

1:40 pm Update> Please take a moment to read the comment below from Coach Hadsell. People that know him have let us know that he is a good man and good coach. As you will see by his heart felt comments below that he had no intention of besmirching Illinois. Cut him some slack. Lesson for all of us...Twitter is real-time and it's growing. You tweet something and a friend retweets it...and suddenly (and within seconds) your message is spread far further than you ever intended (and possibly misconstrued as well).
