A poster on the Aggie football forum TexAgs.com outed a longtime message board poster as Texas A&M athletics department chief financial officer Jeff Toole, the San Antonio Express-News‘s Brent Zwerneman reported. It wouldn’t be news except Toole, known by the screenname “UtayAg,” expressed some choice opinions after Jay Kimbrough was appointed Texas A&M interim chancellor in June.

Toole, a 1980 A&M alum, said he was writing as a “fan and donor” rather than an employee, though he acknowledged to Zwerneman, “this puts my job in jeopardy.” Byrne released a statement saying he had “taken disciplinary action” and that “the matter will be handled internally.”
Toole also addressed the situation as “UtayAg” at TexAgs, finishing a post with the sage advice to not “mix beer and typing.”
