Baylor assistant coach Mark Morefield is resigning to “pursue other opportunities.”

The Bears put out a release on Monday afternoon stating that Morefield is leaving – and will be replaced by Baylor alum Grant McCasland, the head coach at Abilene Christian.

But let’s face it: Morefield didn’t just up and decide to resign.

He was at the center of a controversy that I wrote about back in October at my previous place of employment, Foxsports.com. Morefield sent dozens of texts to Hanner Perea’s AAU and high school coaches – including one of the threatening variety.

It sparked an NCAA investigation, the findings of which have yet to be released. 

"I guarantee u if he does [commit to another school] he will be in Colombia for the spring and summer and next year. Don’t forget it,” the text said.

Considering how close Baylor came to getting the "Death Penalty" back in 2003-05 due to the Patrick Dennehy/Dave Bliss scandal, I would think Baylor would try to run a cleaner program.

your Indiana sources didn't give you all the facts on that story.  if you are going to continue to put out quotes of texts you should do enough investigating to find out who actually said what and sent what and to who it was sent.

Not surprised! Think about it all the Baylor fans that said "They did nothing wrong", yeah right.
