Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin really did fire pool boy on Twitter

BY foxsports • January 7, 2015

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.

"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."
