Texas Longhorns Fire Assistant Football Coach
AUSTIN (AP) - A longtime assistant to Texas football coach Mack Brown was fired earlier this year for sexual harassment, according to documents obtained by ESPN.
The “Outside the Lines” program obtained documents from the university’s investigation of Cleve Bryant.
A Texas football department employee who graduated from the school a few years ago filed a sexual harassment complaint about a year ago. A university investigator then determined that Bryant made repeated unwanted sexual advances toward the young woman.
Bryant was the Longhorns’ associate athletics director for football operations. He also oversaw game-day operations, team travel and recruiting weekends.
Bryant, who is married, denied all of the allegations. He appealed his March firing. Texas has declined to comment on the status of his appeal.
