Kevin Sumlin Releases Statement About Punishment For Assistant Coach Who Subtweeted Recruit

Last week, Texas A&M football made headlines in the recruiting world for all the wrong reasons. On Wednesday night, wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead tweeted scathing messages that were clearly jabs at Tate Martell, a five-star quarterback recruit who had just decommitted from the Aggies. Hours later, the program lost another recruit, four-star receiver Mannie Netherly, who cited Moorehead's tweets in his decision. Tyjon Lindsey, an uncommitted five-star receiver, removed the Aggies from his list. Moorehead apologized after fall-out from the Twitter debacle, and head coach Kevin Sumlin said that he had "addressed it" on Thursday. Today, Sumlin officially put out a release regarding Moorehead.

It is anyone's guess what the discipline for Moorehead will be, but his postings on Wednesday had a real negative impact. We don't expect to see him very active on social media going forward.
