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.
