Baylor coaches will not be punished for taking to Twitter to protest administration

Baylor coaches who are openly disputing a previous university statement will not be punished for their tweets.

On Monday evening, more than 20 Baylor coaches and staff members tweeted #TRUTHDONTLIE in response to a KWTX report supposedly citing the real reason junior college recruit Jeremy Faulk was dismissed from the team this summer. In the report, acting Bears coach Jim Grobe said the decision to remove Faulk, who was stripped of his scholarship this summer after he was accused of sexual assault, "was made by administrators."

As KWTX notes, this contradicts a previous statement from Baylor claiming, "The action to remove Jeremy from the football team was taken by the interim director of athletics and acting head football coach, and did not require other Executive Council members nor Title IX staff involvement."
