This is one of the funniest stories I’ve read in a while.
Texas A&M University-Commerce football Head Coach Guy Morris admitted to police that his team was responsible for the removal of student newspapers distributed on campus Wednesday.
The East Texan published a story on Wednesday titled “Football Player Arrested in Drug Bust.”
Lt. Jason Bone, crime information officer, later interviewed Morris, who admitted to his team members’ involvement in the theft and said he supported their actions.
“I am proud of my players for doing that,” Morris said. “This was the best team building exercise we have ever done.”
Well, not that part. That’s the “what a maroon!” part. Here’s the punchline:
… According to Bone’s police report, Athletic Director Carlton Cooper said the football team could not have stolen the papers without the aid of outside help.
“I don’t think they are smart enough to do this on their own,” he said.
Sounds like a helluva school.
