Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin really did fire pool boy on Twitter
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin fired his pool boy via Twitter last week, but he might have just been kidding.
Sumlin confirmed on ESPN's Mike & Mike Wednesday that it was no joke.
Everyone wants the inside scoop on what a head coach is doing, and the now former pool boy, Rustin McFarland, was at Sumlin's home while the Aggies were looking for a new defensive coordinator.
"Actually, I was on the phone with John Chavis at the time," Sumlin said. "[McFarland's] looking through the pool and I'm coming out in the car and he's still standing around looking."
Then McFarland thought it would be a good idea to tweet what he had just seen, to the displeasure of Sumlin.
You just lost your job!RT“@mcfarlandrk8: Just cleaned Sumlin's pool. Saw him on the phone, hopefully with our new DC!”— Kevin Sumlin (@CoachSumlin) December 30, 2014
"The message is if you come into somebody's house, and somebody hires you, whatever you're doing, it's a little bit personal," Sumlin said. "If you're invading privacy, it's not a public deal, and Twitter's public. So, guess what? Don't come back."
