Kevin Sumlin Disciplines Asst Coach After He Subtweeted Recruits
Last Thursday, Five-star quarterback Tate Martell took to Twitter to let the world know he was reopening his recruiting options after verbally committing to Texas A&M. That backtrack prompted A&M WR’s coach to subtweet Martell, which then caused other recruits decided to follow suit and leave as well.

what is best for my future, I have
decided to reopen my recruiting

Texas A&M Asst coach subtweet:
“I feel sorry for ppl who never understand loyalty. I can’t really even vibe with u. At the end of the day trust is & everything else is BS”
When people found out who he was talking to, he tweeted yet again:
Which prompted another recruit, Tyjon Lindsey, to say this:
Tyjon A. Lindsey: “I would like to say thank you to TAMU & fans but due to some tweets subtweeted towards my brother, I will no longer be looking at A&M.”
On Monday, head coach Kevin Sumlin disciplined that asst coach, but the details weren’t released.
