Nick Rolovich calls out Oregon State on social media for poaching football players

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Rainbow Warrior football head coach Nick Rolovich didn't appreciate the wave of recruiting letters coming from Oregon State trying to lure his players away from Manoa.

Late Thursday night, Rolovich took to Twitter and called out Oregon State's football program for the letters.

"My apologies for our players not being able to attend your Spring game," Rolovich tweeted. "Ours was the same day, bad timing. Quick question, in the 203 years of coaching, none of you realized you couldn't actively recruiting another school's players? Sent to campus? #leakydam #sloppybeavers."

According to NCAA rules, contacting a current student-athlete from another school is considered tampering. An Oregon State spokesman said the program is "currently investigating the matter," per a report from USA TODAY.

When other news outlets began to pick up Rolovich's tweet, Rolovich wasn't pleased with how some outlets were handling the story.

The Beavers staff includes former Hawaii coaches Legi Suiaunoa and Kefense Hynson, who were apart of Rolovich's staff last season.
