Kronshage, who is an offensive lineman from The Woodlands (Texas) High School, was one of many students who tweeted each other Saturday night after The Woodlands defeated Rockwall High to advance in the Texas Class 5A playoffs. According to the Morning News, Kronshage, who is white, tweeted Rockwall center fielder Kendall Coleman, a black player who signed with Iowa.
The tweet, according to the report, contained the n-word, and ended with: "#SEASONOVER." It has since been removed from his Twitter account.
On Monday, Kronshage sent Coleman a tweet reading, "hey man, I've been trying to get ahold of you. Just wanted to say sorry for what happened on Saturday."
Colorado first-year coach Mike MacIntyre said through the school on Thursday night that he has yet to talk with Kronshage.
"It is something we would never condone by our current athletes or any of our prospective recruits," MacIntyre said. He plans to talk with Kronshage today before taking any possible action.
Danny Long, the school district chief, finished his investigation and, according to The Morning News, said, "Everything has been dealt with in an appropriate manner." It's doubtful the school district disciplined Kronsage.
