New Contracts Require Reporting

August 9, 2018

Texas A&M University will fire any football assistants who fail to “promptly report” information regarding alleged sexual assault or gender violence.

According to SportsDay, this language appears in the most recently issued contracts of Tim Brewster, tight ends coach; Darrell Dickey, offensive coordinator; Terry Price, defensive ends coach; and Mark Robinson, director of football operations.

Previous contracts said coaches could be fired for engaging "in an act of dishonesty, theft, moral turpitude or insubordination," but this revisions specifically mentions instances regarding gender violence and sexual assault.

In the event of “an emergency situation” involving sex- and gender-related offenses, assistants must contact the school's Senior Woman Coordinator, the Title IX coordinator or law enforcement. The contracts also require assistants to meet with the Senior Woman Administrator or a substitute to discuss what they are doing to ensure Title IX compliance.
