Texas A&M Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin accidentally tweeted out a joke about USC Trojans coach Steve Sarkisian before quickly deleting it, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot of it.
Sumlin is of course referencing Sarkisian’s drunken tirade at a USC event last weekend, an incident for which Sarkisian has apologized profusely and has entered counseling. Of course, fellow tweeters were quick to poke fun at Sumlin for his mishap.
Sooooo…Sumlin deleted that pretty quick once he realized it wasn't a DM.

That's a real tweet from Kevin Sumlin.

Needless to say, Sumlin did the right thing. As “funny” as Sarkisian’s behavior may have been at the time to some, making light of other people’s problems is never the right thing to do.
Hopefully, this tweet doesn’t come back to bite Sumlin so that he and his team can prepare for their September 5 season opener against Arizona State.
