Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin has a solemn message for embattled quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Sumlin went on “The Paul Finebaum Show” to discuss his former quarterback’s latest off-field incident. Manziel was indicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, accused him of kidnapping and threatening to kill her in January. Sumlin said he hasn’t heard from Manziel since the incident occurred, but hopes he is OK.
“Ultimately what we want, what I want, is for him to be at peace and safe,” Sumlin told Finebaum Wednesday afternoon. “It has nothing to do with football, has everything to do with his life. That’s our message. That’s my message to him.”
The former Texas A&M star was cut by the Cleveland Browns in March after just two seasons with the team. He was dropped by agent Erik Burkhardt shortly afterward and then dropped by his second agent, Drew Rosenhaus, after failing to fulfill Rosenhaus’ ultimatum to seek treatment in April.
Manziel must turn himself in by tomorrow morning or he will be arrested.
