Mississippi state lineman enters transfer portal after Mike Leach tweet


Mississippi State defensive lineman Fabien Lovett, who criticized Bulldogs coach Mike Leach’s tweet, which featured the meme of a woman knitting a noose for her husband during the auto- quarantine, entered the NCAA transfer portal on Friday.

Lovett wrote on Twitter that he had entered the transfer portal and that he had three years of eligibility left.

Lovett’s decision came a day after Leach posted the now-deleted tweet. Lovett replied to his new coach’s tweet with “wtf” on his Twitter account. Lovett did not say if he decided to transfer because of Leach’s tweet.

Leach deleted the tweet Thursday night and then apologized, writing on Twitter: “I sincerely regret that my choice of images in my tweets was deemed offensive. I had no intention of offending anyone. “

Lovett, a sophomore of the red shirt from Olive Branch, Mississippi, had 19 tackles and a bag in 2019.
