Wife of Texas A&M Coach Tweets Racist Hate Mail: ‘Did It Occur to You That a Child May Open it?’


This past Sunday, Texas A&M blew a 44-10 lead to UCLA and lost a shocking 45-44 decision to the Bruins.

Four days later, Charlene Sumlin — the wife of A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin — tweeted a picture of a highly disturbing letter sent to the family’s home.

“[P]lease tell me how any part of this is ok,” Charlene Sumlin wrote in her Tweet of the racist mail. “And to the sender: did it occur to you that a child may open it?”

The letter comes on the heels of not only the loss to UCLA, but a Regent publicly calling for Sumlin’s ouster in a Facebook rant.

“I never said a word when he and his agent manipulated a much bigger and longer contract,” Tony Buzbee, a Houston-based lawyer and Texas A&M Regent, published to Facebook (via ESPN). “I said nothing about his arrogance and his mishandling of multiple player controversies. I said nothing when we had multiple awesome recruiting classes, only to see key players leave our school or underperform. But tonight I am very disappointed…I’m only one vote on the Board of Regents but when the time comes my vote will be that Kevin Sumlin needs to GO.”
