Yup, Make That Two Baylor Football Employees That Were Fired For Inappropriate Sexual Conduct Within A Month Of Being Hired
KWTX- Another Baylor athletics official has been fired amid the university's sex assault scandal.
KWTX learned Monday the university dismissed DeMarkco Butler, the associate director for football operations, over inappropriate text messages. Butler was just hired by the university last month.
While Butler was let go because of inappropriate texts to a teenager, a school official indicated they were sent to an individual who was an adult under Texas statute.
When asked about the firing Monday, David Kaye, Baylor's director of athletics communications said in a statement, "DeMarkco Butler is no longer employed by Baylor University. As a personnel matter, we have no further comment."
Butler is the second person hired under new head football coach Matt Rhule the school has had to terminate.
Brandon Washington, Rhule's newly hired assistant strength coach, was fired after he was arrested in a prostitution sting in early February.
I'm not knowledgable enough to tell you what level of complete and utter dysfunction is necessary to give a college sports team the death penalty. I don't know the point in which a criminal culture and a climate that clearly attracts sexual misconduct is deemed irreparable. I probably would have argued that 52 sexual assaults at the hands of football players over the course of 4 years was enough to make Baylor sit in the corner and think about what they've done instead of picking up the pigskin in the foreseeable future. It's pretty clear the NCAA felt differently, and I think we have to give them the benefit of the doubt with the amount of undeniable rationale they are known to bring to the table in regards to handing out punishments.
Still, I can't help but wonder if they would want to kindly reconsider their decision now that Baylor had to fire a second brand new employee no more than a month after their hiring for questionable, sex-based promiscuity. Forgive me if I am wrong. I'm not exactly management material, but if people start applying to a university knowing that they have skeletons in the sac then isn't it fair to assume that particular university has an institutional issue? If those with checkered pasts or a text log full of dick pics to teenagers conduct job searches that continually end within the program that enabled rape to the point in which it became an epidemic don't you think it would have be considered more than a coincidence? I don't know if Brandon Washington or DeMarkco Butler thought they would be able to lawlessly fuck on the campus that used to encourage it. I do know that they both tried to within the introductory period of time in which new employees are generally on their best behavior, so they didn't think that their misconduct would be accepted by their new workplace then they weren't strictly informed that it wouldn't be.
