Bold move coach. I know its 2018, and people have to tip toe around what they say in public, but even if this was 2005, Coach Jeffcoat would have been fired.
First off who sends an email like that? Completely unprofessional. If there was one thing I have learned in the last two years in the corporate world, you don’t bring politics into the workplace. That’s a given. You don’t know how people react, so its best to keep how you vote back at home and in conversations with people that don’t hand you your paycheck.
Second, who emails a prospective player like that? It’s not like Texas Weslyan is a D1 juggernaut like BYU. For starters its in the NAIA, which falls below NCAA Division III and just above junior college. If a prospective player that WANTS to play at your shitty NAIA school, you take him in with open arms. If the kid wants to play some baseball and smoke weed on the side, let him do it. It’s not like he’s going to be bringing mad cash into the Texas Wesleyan Baseball Program. TWU has an endowment of just under $40 million. Where does this fall with top D1 programs? Texas A & M tops out at $192 million, Texas is next at $183 million and Ohio State is third at $167 million. An these numbers are the yearly profits from college sports. Why Coach Jeffcoat is picky is beyond me.
Lastly, who does this to a prospective baseball player. If anything he wants to get a sub par education before he tries his chance at the MLB farm system.
Coach Jeffcoat, shame on you.
