Texas A&M coach Aaron Moorehead apologizes for Twitter outburst

The Texas A&M Aggies have not had good luck over the last few months and Wednesday night, their luck got much worse when five-star quarterback Tate Martell decommitted from the program.

After the announcement, wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead thought it was a good idea to go on a Twitter rant, seemingly subtweeting Martell in the process.

His rant led to two wide receiver recruits, four-star Mannie Netherly and five-star guy Tyjon Lindsey, pulling their names from the Aggies’ hat.

In an attempt at damage control, Moorehead released an apology.

Recruits are warned about having reprehensible behavior on social media account as it could cost them a scholarship. Moorehead’s actions on Twitter cost his team Tate Martell and two other recruits.

I guess this goes to show that whatever you say on social media, whether you are a player or a coach, can come back to bite you.
