An assistant coach at Texas A&M is apologizing after making a series of tweets about loyalty and accountability that were reportedly sent after a Bishop Gorman High School football star decommitted from the school.

Aaron Moorehead sent the tweets soon after Tate Martell tweeted that he had decided not to go to Texas A&M, according to ESPN.

Martell committed to the Aggies last August, but has gradually softened on the school. He tweeted about his decision on Wednesday.

Moorehead sent his own tweets about the matter within minutes.

ESPN says more tweets followed, including one during which Moorhead claimed he "wan't even talking about who everyone thinks I'm talking about."

Other players soon came out in support of Martell and Mannie Netherly also announced that he had decommitted.

Moorehead apologized for his "impromptu comments on social media" on Thursday.
