Texas A&M suffered one of the great collapses of all-time in college football Sunday night in Pasadena vs. UCLA, blowing a 44-10 lead, losing to the Bruins 45-44.
Following the collapse, A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who is African-American, is on the hot seat in the college football world, seemingly coaching for his job every week.
Just now, his wife shared a photo on Twitter of racially motivated hate-mail calling the coach a n*gger. Charlene Sumlin, shared the photo while asking "how any of you think this is ok." She followed up with a chilling question to the sender "did it occur to you that a child may open it?" Sumlin has 4 young kids living with him.
The sender of the hate-mail ended the letter demanding Sumlin "get lost" followed by a threat of "or else." The return mailing address simply was listed as "Houston Country Club."
See the chilling racist threatening hate-mail below:
As expected, the college football community quickly came out in support of Sumlin and his family:
This is disgraceful that someone sent this to Kevin Sumlin's family. https://t.co/dBGJFkDzsh— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) September 8, 2017

Unfortunately, the return address of Sumlin hate mail is simply Houston Country Club. Of course. Because a coward sent it.— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) September 8, 2017

Good on Charlene Sumlin for posting that hateful letter and putting it into the spotlight. That took courage. Sending the letter did not.— Ryan McGee (@ESPNMcGee) September 8, 2017
