Notre Dame coaches read tweets from student-athletes

Some NCAA coaches ban twitter, because social media can cause problems -- remember Jimbo? But for the most part, Twitter is harmless and just an extension of your personality. Plus, it can give coaches an inside look at their players.

Notre Dame held its annual O.S.C.A.R.S. (Outstanding Student-Athletes Celebrating Achievements & Recognition Showcase) on April 30, inside Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. This year marked the 13th annual event for the traditional year-end gala honoring more than 700 student-athletes for their achievements on the field and in the classroom during the 2013-14 campaign.

While several athletic and academic awards were handed out, the highlight of the evening was when Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick and many of the Fighting Irish coaches were featured in a video reading their players tweets.

The results would make Nick Offerman proud.
