Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel apologized to his college coaching staff and is being told to be honest about what led to his departure last weekend from the Manning Academy, reports ESPN.com.

Manziel was sent home from the Manning Passing Academy because he missed assigned meetings and practice sessions, apparently due to illness. Manziel, last season’s Heisman Trophy winner, was at the academy, held at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La., as a college coach and counselor.

But there were several reports earlier Sunday that said Manziel was sent home by Archie Manning because of “partying” but camp officials said those reports were not true.
