A Texas Christian University assistant athletic director has apologized for a controversial post on his Facebook page about the Texas A&M University bonfire tragedy.

Greg Featherston, who works in the TCU compliance department re-posted a comment Wednesday with regard to Texas A&M adding 12 seats to Kyle Field that will never be filled.

We've included a screen shot of that comment Featherston said he didn't write, but could have.

The message said in part,

"If the number of students that were victims of what amounted to drunken, negligent homicide on the part of that cow college didn't match so perfectly with the cult's favorite number, I doubt you would have seen anything like this done."

Featherston said Friday it wasn't his intention to disrespect the fallen students or minimize the magnitude of the bonfire tragedy.
