Kevin Sumlin’s wife shows racially charged hate mail

Charlene Sumlin, wife of Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin, shared an ugly, hate-filled letter that her husband received following the team’s loss to UCLA.


This is beyond despicable.

Sumlin entered the year on the hot seat at Texas A&M. He’s been very much under fire┬ásince the loss to the Bruins. Some of the criticism has been fair. Some of it may be a bit unfair. That’s in the eye of the beholder. But for the most parts, it’s fallen well within what’s normal in sports.

But the letter that Sumlin got is well beyond any of that. At the end of the day, it’s a football game. It’s nothing worth hurling ugly racial insults at people and making them feel physically unsafe. Hopefully whoever wrote and sent this is found.
