A&M assistant is disciplined for tweets on player's reversal

BY foxsports • May 9, 2016

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin says assistant Aaron Moorehead has been disciplined for a series of tweets about loyalty and accountability he posted last week after a highly touted quarterback recruit announced he was breaking a verbal commitment to the Aggies.

Sumlin said in a statement Monday that Moorehead ''abused the privilege of social media and the result reflected poorly'' on Moorehead, the football team and the school.

A few minutes after Tate Martell from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas tweeted Wednesday night that he was reopening his recruitment, Moorhead posted, ''I feel sorry for ppl who never understand loyalty.''

Moorehead followed with more critical tweets, never naming Martell. Soon after, another Aggies recruit, receiver Mannie Netherly, posted on Twitter that he also was reversing his commitment.
