Steve Kragthorpe has resigned as wide receivers coach at Texas A&M, to be closer with his family, who is said to be dealing with some health issues.
“My family is dealing with some medical issues and they need me at home,” Kragthorpe said in a statement released by the university. “The timing could not be helped and I hate to leave Coach Sherman and the guys at this time.”
Sherman said he had hoped Kragthorpe could return this season once his family’s health issues were resolved.
“Ultimately, he felt his wife Cynthia, and his three boys, required his undivided attention and I respect him for that,” Sherman said. “Steve is not only an excellent coach, but he is an even better person. We will keep him and his family in our prayers.”
