The Hailton Tiger cats hired Former Baylor Head Coach Art Briles in a move that’s pissing people off and rightfully so. Briles was let go by Baylor for basically covering up all kinds of illegal shit his players were doing including raping girls to prevent police involvement and any disruption to his football program.
Heres a quick snapshot from WIKIPEDIA of what Briles either helped try to wash or ignored altogether:
- April 30, 2012: Football player Tevin Elliot is arrested on multiple charges of illegal sexual contact with a woman on campus.
- January 23, 2014: With four women, in addition to the original accuser, coming forward with accusations, Tevin Elliot is convicted. Tanya, one of the women, stated Elliot pushed her into the mud, raped her, and then allowed her to get up. He then immediately shoved her, face first, into a metal fence and raped her again.
- January 24, 2014, Elliot is sentenced to two decades in a detention facility and fined US $10,000.
June 2015: According to Defensive Coordinator Phil Bennett, player Sam Ukwuachu, who transferred from Boise State, would play for Baylor in 2014. Comments made based on information that was available at the time. However, soon thereafter, Ukwuachu is indicted for sexually assaulting a Baylor soccer player. Ukwuachu was immediately suspended from the team, but allowed to resume academic pursuits.
Hot hire. It’s not like the Ti Cats are just finding this out like he fudged something on his resume it was huge international news and led to his firing as well a load of other people too.
Having said that, the CFL is a league that’s made a habit of drafting dead guys we shouldn’t be to shocked.
