Baylor Football Staffer Fired For Sending 'Inappropriate Texts' To Teenager

DeMarkco Butler, Baylor's associate director of football operations hired last month, has been fired.

According to a report by KWTX, Butler, who was hired as a member of Matt Rhule's staff last month, was fired for sending inappropriate text messages to a Texas teenager.

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 member of Rhule's staff—which takes over for the scandal-ridden Art Briles administration—to lose his job. Last month, assistant strength coach Brandon Washington was let go after being caught in a prostitution sting.
