Kingsbury on Manziel: 'I'm worried'

BY foxsports • February 4, 2016

Cleveland Browns quaterback Johnny Manziel's name has continually been popping up in the news, and not for the right reasons.

And one person that is taking notice is his former offenseive coordinator at Texas A&M, Kliff Kingsbury.

The current Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach was in Dallas on Thursday and spoke with FOX 4 about his former quarterback.

"I'm worried," Kingsbury told KDFW FOX 4. "I obviously want what's best for him, a great friend to me, did a lot for me and my career, so I hope that he can sort things out."

"He has a lot of friends, a lot of support, people that love him and just to hang in there."

Manziel won the Heisman Trophy in 2012 under the guidance of Kingsbury at Texas A&M.

Manziel has spent a lot of time recently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area after the NFL season ended.  Manziel attended the Dallas Mavericks game Wednesday night against the Miami Heat, but would not answer questions when asked about his current situation with the Browns.

On Thursday, a report by the Fort Worth police stated that his ex-girlfriend alleges he struck her at an uptown Dallas hotel on Friday.  Manziel has not been charged in the alleged incident.
