dfw TCU Official Resigns Over Post Critical Of A&M Best Young Athlete In DFW?

FORT WORTH (AP) — A TCU compliance official has resigned a day after apologizing for a Facebook post that criticized Texas A&M over the bonfire collapse that killed 12 students in 1999.

Greg Featherston, an assistant athletic director, said in a statement Saturday that “it is best that I move on” after a post that called the incident “drunken, negligent homicide” and made other disparaging remarks about the university.

In an apology posted Friday on Facebook, Featherston wrote that he shared a link to the comments but didn’t write them.

The Texas A&M students died while building the massive structure for the bonfire that was part of traditional festivities before the game against rival Texas every year. Featherston said he attended Texas at the time of the collapse.
