Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin deletes tweet about USC's Steve Sarkisian
Saturday August 29th, 2015

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin deleted a tweet Saturday appearing to reference USC coach Steve Sarkisian's behavior at a recent donor event. 

Last Sunday, Sarkisian apologized for his behavior and inappropriate language at the Trojans’ “Salute to Troy” event. On Tuesday, Sarkisian told reporters he drank alcohol in the USC locker room, and at the event had mixed alcohol with an unspecified medication. Sarkisian said he will receive treatment for his alcohol use. 

Sumlin's tweet was posted Saturday morning and deleted quickly after, possibly meant as a direct message for someone else: 


Sumlin has not addressed the deleted tweet. Later Saturday, he tweeted a reaction to a new recruiting commitment. 

The Aggies open the season Sept. 5 against Arizona State.
