Vandals change A&M coach's name to 'Black Jesus' on Wikipedia

Posted: Updated:
COLLEGE STATION, TX (KLTV) -

A vandal has made a few questionable modifications to Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's page on the popular reference website Wikipedia.

At least two modifications appear to have been made in the past few hours. In space above his photo where his name would normally appear, the vandal has Sumlin listed as "Black Jesus".

In another spot, the vandal changed Sumlin's job title from "head coach" to "Boss".

An IP address listed on the edit history of Sumlin's page appears to originate from College Station, according to an IP tracking website.

Wikipedia's open policy allows for just about anyone to make a modification to a page. However, administrators on the site usually note and fix any vandalism they are able to find.

As of 5 p.m. local time, Wikipedia administrators have fixed the issue.

Sumlin took the Aggies to a 10-2 regular season record and a 6-2 record in the SEC in 2012.
