‘Hateful’ tweet about Stacey Abrams costs university football coach his job (subscription)
An assistant football coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga lost his job after smearing Stacey Abrams and the state of Georgia in a tweet that perpetuated unsubstantiated claims of election fraud, university officials said.
“That tweet was hateful, hurtful and untrue,” Steven R. Angle, the university’s chancellor, said in a video posted by the university on YouTube. “Coach Malone is no longer a part of this university.”
Mr. Angle said that Mr. Malone failed to meet the expectations of university faculty and staff to lead in way that maintains a respectful and tolerant campus environment.
