Then Texas RBs coach Major Applewhite engaged in “inappropriate, consensual behavior w/ an adult student”… DURING THE 09 FIESTA BOWL.
Major Applewhite disciplined by Texas for 'inappropriate, consensual' behavior with student
By Peter Woodburn on Feb 1, 11:18p
The Texas Longhorns' quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator was disciplined for reported inappropriate behavior with an adult student during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl.
Major Applewhite, the quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator of the Texas Longhorns, reportedly engaged in inappropritate, consensual behavior with an adult student during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl, Bob Ballou of KEYE TV reported on Friday.
The Longhorns defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes 24-21 in the game, and Applewhite was the running back coach and assistant head coach to Mack Brown at the time.
Applewhite, who is 34-years-old, admitted wrong doing and was disciplined by Texas athletics director DeLoss Dodds for the inappropriate conduct. His discipline included counseling. Applewhite is married and has one child.
Dodds released ( http://collegesportsblog.dallasnews.com/2013/02/breaking-major-applewhite-in-consensual-inappropriate-with-adult-student.html/ ) the following statement describing the situation:
"Major Applewhite engaged in inappropriate, consensual behavior with an adult student one time during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl activities. After learning of his behavior later that month, I took immediate action to review the situation. We promptly initiated an inquiry with assistance from the university's Legal Affairs office and other units outside of Athletics. Major admitted his inappropriate conduct and he was disciplined. In determining appropriate discipline, we analyze the facts and circumstances surrounding the behavior and its relation to job responsibilities. Major fully accepted his discipline, including counseling. We have high standards for behavior and expect our staff and coaches to adhere to them in all aspects of their lives. I believe that the appropriate discipline was taken in this case."
Applewhite first started with the Longhorns as a graduate assistant in 2003-2004. After three different coaching stints with three schools in 2005-2007, he returned to the Longhorns coaching staff in 2008.
This is the second scandal the Texas athletic department has had to deal with this year. Texas' women's track coach Bev Kearny was forced to resign after it was revealed she had an affair with a female student ( http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/08/us/texas-track-coach-resigns/index.html ) in 2002.

Is...is this bad? It's not like he's her professor or he got her a job somewhere.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
how many times can you squeeze inappropriate sexual behaviour into an article? They might as well have just repeated that phrase throughout with as much information as was provided.
This is going to cause some issues. They fire one coach for her (homosexual) incident and write up the football coach.
Does suck, though, that he was married w/ kids. That's the only thing thats wrong with it.
That happened in 2009, but is getting attention now? Sounds like the lesbian track coach, who's girlfriend may have depended on her for a scholarship, and her allies, are gearing up for a lawsuit.
Yep. Essentially this is what it is all about.
"Ohhhh, man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take state."
