Earlier today I reported that former Texas A&M star wide receiver Terrence Murphy accused his former coach Dennis Franchione of player abuse similar to what’s been alleged about former Kansas football coach Mark Mangino and suspended Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.
After the jump is video of Murphy dissing Franchione on camera when he was asked to compare Franchione to fellow A&M football coaches R.C. Slocum and Mike Sherman.
Perhaps the greatest wide receiver in Texas A&M history, Terrence Murphy, posted an ominous message on his Facebook account today about former A&M head football coach Dennis Franchione:
It is amazing that two coaches in the Big 12 are getting negative press for mis-treating players on their football teams. WOW, Coach Fran treated players at A&M like this the day he arrived at A&M.
Now that I am a man, looking back it hurts my heart to know how many of my teammates will never come back to A&M because of those antics, and how many kid’s life (sic) were altered because of it.
Guess it did not happen to a football legend’s son, so it was ignored. ESPN brought back bad memories. I fault myself for not stepping up as the leader of the team and saying something.
Franchione coached A&M for only five seasons, from 2003-07. He was bought out by the school following the ‘07 season. He coached Murphy during the 2003-04 seasons.
