I’m as ticked at Coach Sumlin as any Aggie, but this letter was disgusting.
On Saturday, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin addressed a racist letter sent to his home following his team’s 45-44 loss to UCLA in the season opener Sept. 3.
“I get criticism, which is part of the job,” he said, per ESPN.com. “I get suggestions, and that’s part of the job. In this situation, for that [letter] to come to my home and for her to open it and read that, that is completely different. My wife and kids have never called a play. My wife and kids have never done anything football-wise that led to us losing a game or winning a game.”
He continued, “The racial [aspect] is one part of it, but the open-ended threat at the end, [sent] to my house…I’ve got to draw the line there.”
Sumlin’s response came after Texas A&M evened its record at 1-1 following a 24-14 victory over Nicholls State.
