By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Chattanooga Mocs offensive line coach Chris Malone is no longer employed by the school, according to FootballScoop. He allegedly made a social media post on Tuesday night that was deemed offensive.

The social media post has been deleted. However, while it’s been deleted, it has been screen captured.

“Congratulations to the state GA and Fat Albert @staceyabrams because you have truly shown America the true works of cheating in an election, again!!!” reads Malone’s tweet, captured by Chattanooga Holler. “Enjoy the buffet Big Girl! You earned it!!! Hope the money was good, still not governor!”

ESPN is reporting that Malone has deleted his Twitter account.

“Our football program has a clear set of standards,” Wright said in a statement posted to social media. “Those standards include respecting others. It is a message our players hear daily. It is a standard I will not waiver on. What was posted on social media by a member of my staff is unacceptable and not any part of what I stand for or what Chattanooga Football stands for. Life is bigger than football and as leaders of young men we have to set that example, first and foremost. With that said, effectively immediately, that individual is no longer a part of my staff.”

Malone was in his second season with the team before his departure. His staff page has already been removed from the website.

Abrams is a politician in Georgia, who was a part of Georgia’s state assembly from 2007 through 2017. She was defeated by Brian Kemp in 2018 when he became the state’s governor.

She ran as a Democrat against the Republican Kemp. Plus, she endorsed fellow Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, who won runoff races on Tuesday night.

“The sentiments in that post do not represent the values of our football program, our athletics department or our university,” Chattanooga Athletic Director Mark Wharton said.
