Major Applewhite: Texas Longhorns Coach Had Affair With Student
Major Applewhite, a coach for the University of Texas Longhorns, had an affair with a student.
Applewhite is the Co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach for the Longhorns. He was quarterback of the Longhorns from 1998 to 2001, and is married to Julie Applewhite. They have one child together.
KEYE TV reports that the University issued a press release acknowledging the affair, which occurred during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl.
The text of the release from DeLoss Dodds, men’s head athletics director at University of Texas is:
“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 also sent out a press release admitting to the affair:
“Several years ago, I made a regretful decision resulting in behavior that was totally inappropriate. It was a one-time occurrence and was a personal matter. Shortly after it occurred, I discussed the situation with DeLoss Dodds. I was upfront and took full responsibility for my actions. This is and was resolved four years ago with the University. Through counsel I have worked with my wife and the incident is behind us. I am regretful for my mistake and humbled by this experience. I am deeply sorry for the embarrassment it has caused my friends, family, and the University. I appreciate all of them. I’ve learned and grown from this and look forward to my work at Texas.”
Beverly Kearney, who worked as a the head coach for women’s track and field and cross country for the University of Texas Longhorns recently resigned after an affair with a student was revealed.
