Baylor Fires Man Hired To Rehabilitate University’s Image For Texting Underage Girl

Baylor University officials have fired DeMarkco Butler, the associate director for football operations,  less than a month after he was hired.

According to KWTX, the university terminated Butler, who was hired February 15 as the associate director for football operations, over inappropriate text messages he sent to a teenage girl.

A Baylor University official indicated that while Butler was fired for sending texts to a teen, they were sent to an individual who was an adult under Texas statutory laws.

David Kaye, Baylor’s director of athletics communications released statement:

“DeMarkco Butler is no longer employed by Baylor University. As a personnel matter, we have no further comment.”

Butler is already the second employee hired under new head football coach Matt Rhule that has been fired by the university.

The first, Brandon Washington, Rhule’s newly hired assistant strength coach, was fired after he was arrested in a prostitution sting earlier this year.
