Texas fires Chris Beard amid felony domestic violence charge

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas has fired basketball coach Chris Beard, who faces a felony domestic family violence charge stemming from a Dec. 12 incident involving his fiancée, with the school telling his attorney on Thursday that Beard is “unfit” for the position.

Beard had five years left on a seven-year guaranteed contract that included a provision he could be fired for cause if he was charged with a felony or committed other behavior unbecoming of his position or that reflected poorly on the university.

The charge of assault by strangulation/suffocation family violence carries a possible prison sentence of two to 10 years if convicted; the woman told police he strangled and bit her, but later denied Beard choked her.

Chris Beard will bounce back as he is a really good coach.

The fiancee is very volatile as people in Lubbock knew. She was fired from her coaching job over anger mgmt issues.

Beard walks away with a ton of Longhorn cash and probably gets a nice break and relief form the pressure of fielding top 10 teams or bust.

Do they have to pay him since he is getting fired for "just cause"?
