An assistant football coach at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga dereliction of duty after smearing Stacy Abrams and Georgia on Twitter, which perpetuates unproven allegations of election fraud.
According to a biography deleted from the college sports website, coach Chris Malone served as Mocs’ assistant and offensive coach in his second season.
After holding a run-off election in the U.S. Senate in Georgia, Mr. Malone made derogatory remarks on Tuesday evening to the former governor candidate and former leader of the Georgia House of Representatives. .
“Congratulations, GA and Fat Albert @staceyabrams state, because you did show the real work of cheating again to the United States!!” Mr. Ma Long wrote. “Enjoy the self-help big girl! You won!!! I hope the money is good, not the governor yet!”
Mr. Ma Long later deleted the post, but did not delete it until others took screenshots of it and shared it widely on social media.
The president of the university, Steven R. Angle, said in a video posted by the university on YouTube on Thursday: “That tweet is abhorrent, painful and untrue.” “Ma Long Coaching is no longer part of this university.”
Mr. Angle said that Mr. Malone failed to meet the expectations of the university’s faculty and staff and was unable to maintain a respectful and tolerant campus environment in a leadership manner.
Anger said: “The University of Tennessee in Chattanooga does not tolerate and unambiguously condemns all forms of discrimination and hatred.”
Efforts to contact Mr. Ma Long did not immediately succeed. His Twitter account has been disabled, and his address in Chattanooga does not list any phone numbers.
Ms. Abrams has counted on helping President-elect Biden carry the victory in November and two Democratic Senate candidates this week. She has been trying to suppress the participation of black voters across the country.
UT-Chattanooga University has approximately 12,000 students. Mocs played at the Southern Conference, which postponed autumn sports (including football) due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The university’s chief football coach, Rusty Wright, said in a statement that one of his employees has posted to social media.
Wright said: “The content posted on social media by one of my staff is unacceptable and not what I represent or anything represented by Chattanooga Football.”
