Mississippi State says that former tight ends coach Scott Sallach left the school on his own, but that’s not the way he sees it.
The program and former assistant have had an apparently messy split turn public on Twitter after the school announced Thursday that Sallach had left the program.

By Friday, though, Sallach provided an emphatic rebuttal to that view of the situation on Twitter in a tweet that has since been deleted.
I'm not pursuing "other opportunities" I am good coach & was not wanted where I was. I'm unemployed & hoping to somehow support my family

“I’m not pursuing ‘other opportunities I am good coach & was not wanted where I was,” Sallach wrote. “I’m unemployed & hoping to somehow support my family.”
Sallach had previously served as tight ends coach, as well as director of player personnel in the Bulldogs’ program. He was hired by Dan Mullen in 2009 and remained on staff through last season.
