When someone is as beloved as Tim “Ox” Enright was at Pitt and after 31 years are longer with the school, it’s sure to get plenty of reaction.
That’s been the case a day after Alan Saunders and PSN broke the news that Enright and Pitt parted ways. At this hour, Pitt hasn’t commented on the news but plenty of other people have.
Here’s some of the reaction that we’ve read on Twitter. We’ll continue to update this as more people voice their opinion on “Ox” leaving Pitt.

I can’t say enough about Tim. One of the best I have ever met and he made everyday at Pitt more enjoyable. He is a great friend and he always worked his ass off for us players. Glad to see him go out on his terms. He’s been a staple for the program. Its a sad day for Pitt https://t.co/aWxqg0LtsQ

Current and former Pitt managers and equipment staff:
Man did more for that university than any person that’s rolled through there in the last 30 years. Ox helped me get though college and gave me a chance to experience something no one else ever has. #FreeOx #H2P https://t.co/sxMRntOnV1

The best in the business by far. Appreciate everything he did for us more than people can imagine. He made everyday enjoyable and won’t be the same without him leading us student managers!! https://t.co/7xZR1Er3Gb

A sad day to see Ox leave the Pitt program. There couldn't have been a better guy running that equipment room for the past 30+ years. I owe him a ton for everything he did for me and everyone else during my time with the team. https://t.co/y8k2KRrcI0

The way he took care of us student managers and the ones close to him is unlike anything we deserved. Truly gonna miss that man, made my time with Pitt much more than I expected it would ever be!

Ox did so much behind-the-scenes work at Pitt. What I'm hearing about his departure is not flattering to Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi.
