The Baylor football program continues to be in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons.
This week, another member of the staff finds himself on the outs after he was fired for sending “inappropriate text messages” to a teenager, according to a report from KWTX.
The staff member was DeMarkco Butler, who was hired less than a month ago by the Bears to serve as associate director for football operations.
“DeMarkco Butler is no longer employed by Baylor University. As a personnel matter, we have no further comment,” David Kaye, Baylor’s Director of Athletics Communications, said in a brief statement on the matter.
While the recipient of Butler’s alleged texts is a teenager, they are considered an adult under Texas statute.
Despite that, the 28-year-old Butler has been axed.
Butler becomes the second member of first-year Baylor coach Matt Rhule’s staff to be fired, joining Brandon Washington, the Assistant Strength Coach who was fired after being arrested in a prostitution sting last month.
Baylor certainly still has plenty of work to do to change the culture surrounding the program.
