Assistant who taped Bliss loses job
The Baylor assistant basketball coach whose secretly recorded audiotapes revealed a coverup plot by former coach Dave Bliss has lost his job less a week after the hiring of new coach Scott Drew, his lawyer said Thursday.

ABAR ROUSES RECORDINGS, made July 30 and 31, revealed that Bliss had tried to use players and an assistant coach in an attempt to portray slain player Patrick Dennehy as a drug dealer.

The tapes of conversations between Bliss, Rouse and players show Bliss thought the drug story would steer investigators away from allegations the coach had improperly paid for Dennehys tuition, an NCAA violation.
When hired last week, Drew had announced he would not retain any of the assistants hired under Bliss.
Rouses lawyer, Michael D. Pegues of Dallas, said his client was disappointed when he was asked this week to clean out his office and surrender his athletic department car.

Let's skip the morality of keeping this man on, isn't he protected by some kind of Whistle Blower law?

You must jest.

In Texas, an employee can be terminated without cause at a moment's notice. No reason, no justification, just gone.

That's labor law Dubya style!
