Texas A&M Coach Receives Racist Letter Calling Him A N*gger

In the opening game of the college football season, Texas A&M suffered a historic collapse against UCLA, which spurred countless calls for head coach Kevin Sumlin to be fired. On Thursday, Sumlin’s wife shared a piece of the hate mail that arrived at the family home.

The college and law enforcement officials are investigating.  His wife, Charlene Sumlin, posted a picture of the letter, which had a return address in Houston, on Twitter on Thursday night. The handwritten letter read:

You suck as a coach! You’re a (racial epithet) and can’t win! Please get lost! Or else.

On the post Charlene added in part:

how is any part of this OK?

Later on Thursday night Texas A&M President Michael Young and athletic director Scott Woodward issued a joint statement condemning the letter and adding that they are:

working with law enforcement authorities to bring the sender of this letter to justice.

The statement also said:

There is no excuse for hatred and, as a community. We will not allow the ignorance of some to intimidate any member of our community.

On Saturday night in Los Angeles, Texas A&M squandered a 34-point third-quarter lead in a season-opening loss to UCLA.
