According to Jarrett Bell of USA Today Sports, an assistant NFL coach claims that former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu told an NFL team during a meeting that he lost count of how many drug tests he failed.
During one visit, Mathieu was asked how many drug tests he failed before he was suspended in college.
According to an assistant coach for the team, Mathieu responded: “I quit counting at 10. I really don’t know.”
The coach, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment about the evaluation, doesn’t dump all of the blame on Mathieu. He points a finger at LSU.
“If he flunked 10 tests before they suspended him, it shows that he got no kind of help,” the coach said.
This isn’t a surprise at all. Right now all that matters is that Mathieu is clean and is working hard towards being a succesful NFL player.
