It was likely going to happen eventually, but with a new book and a new season on the horizon, the wait is finally over: Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim has joined Twitter.

While I tend to doubt Boeheim will be as active as some head coaches are on Twitter -- can you imagine Boeheim disgustedly tweeting at halftime of a close game like Tim Miles tweets during games at Nebraska? -- it is nice to see the veteran head coach open up a little bit and show his personality on social media.

I’m not sure if Syracuse fans are ready for another 50 years of Boeheim but a dose of him now-and-then on social media should be amusing.

You can follow the 69-year-old Syracuse head coach here: @therealboeheim.
