Texas had an emergency Board of Regents meeting tonight. Afterward, DeLoss Dodds issued this statement.
"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.”
Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds released a statement Friday night regarding a relationship between Major Applewhite and a Texas student.
The question is, should I even care about a consensual relationship between two adults, even if one is a school employee and one is a student? I don't really see why he is being reprimanded in this situation.

If was the head guy he'd be gone most likely. I'm sure it happens a lot all across the country,and I'm surprised it doesn't come out more often but maybe the rest aren't stupid enough to get caught..

might eventually hurt his chances of becoming a head coach at UT someday if there ever was a chance of that happening.
They just fired there track coach fo the same thing!'
Isn't the track coach suing for wrongfull termination that's why this is being brought up
This is my stance as well.
Lance Thompson wouldn't make it at UT.
This is pretty weak.
Yes apparently her attorney did some digging and is now using this information in her lawsuit. It still shouldn't effect Major imo, but might end up costing the University some money.
Was he her boss in any way?

as far as I know there isn't a lawsuit yet. There very well may be one coming though.
No, not to our knowledge. She was a normal student.
so far that hasn't come out one way or the other.
As long as it wasn't Johnny football stealing applewhites wife I'm ok with it if not he would end up looking like this guy!
His wife was pregnant with a child while this went down boys. Big deal.
Status we rarely agree but this^

Missed opportunity to bag a dog of a coach.
Not only that she is suing for discrimination. She is a minority and they canned her he is white and deloss covered it up!
There is other factors there: The track coach was involved in a long standing relationship with one of her own student athletes which she hid from the University. Major had a one time affair with a random student, came forward to the University and was already punished.
i didn't say he wasn't retarded. I just said it was a non-issue as it related to his job status
Thats between him and his wife. If it isn't a big deal to his wife then it isn't a big deal.
What a wasted opportunity you had with Dontre..
If she's just some student I tend to agree. I only have an issue with it when it's a teacher/coach/etc. doing things like this with one of their students. Conflict of interests and what not.
