LBS- Texas A&M wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead went on a big Twitter rant Wednesday night right after Tate Martell sent his tweet saying he had decommitted from the school.
Martell was a five-star recruit and one of the top QBs in the 2017 class. He was expected to help the program after Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen both left.
Moorehead said his tweets about “loyalty” and “trust” were unrelated to Martell, but you can judge for yourself.
What? This ridiculously vague tweet about staying true to your word? You think THAT is in reference to his blue chip quarterback? The same one that just publicly announced his decommitment not even ten minutes ago on the same social media platform? Come on guys. What is this a witch hunt? We are going to hyperextend our shoulders reaching to make that connection.
Put down your firearms you keyboard warriors. This was simply a case of bad timing. Aaron Moorehead is just a passionate guy that had the sudden urge to voice his opinion on loyalty. It's not his fault the kid that would have likely given him some job security coincidentally became the target of that opinion just moments after reopening his recruitment.
It's not like a well respected college assistant is sitting there closely monitoring his timeline for what his future players might put on the internet for all too see. Aaron Moorehead is far too busy of a guy to have caught Tate Martell's tweet. I guarantee he didn't see it sitting directly below his text box before he started his random rant about honesty that was directed at nobody in particular. It's not like he would lie about it. It's the people that are misguidedly criticizing him for being petty that don't value the truth. They are the soft ones. Not Aaron Moorehead. Not the guy that isn't afraid to share his thoughts even at the most inopportune times. There's no way he would get so bothered by an indecisive teenager's change of heart that he would publicly lash out. He's way too Texas tough to let something so reasonable get under his skin.
