Baylor strength coach arrested on prostitution charg
A member of the Baylor University athletics department was arrested early Saturday morning in a prostitution sting.
McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Brandon Washingtaon, 33, was arrested by deputies at a local hotel on a solicitation of prostitution charge, a Class B misdemeanor.
The sheriff identified Washington as a strength coach at Baylor. Baylor confirmed that Washington was employed by Baylor when he was arrested early Saturday, but said he was immediately fired upon the school learning of the arrest. County records identify Washington as an employee of 1090 Athletics.
The Baylor athletics website contained no mention of Washington as of late Monday evening.
Washington was a member of the strength training staff at Temple University in 2016. New Baylor head football coach Matt Rhule was hired away from Temple in December.
A statement from the Baylor athletics department sent late Monday reads, in full: “After a full criminal background check was completed and cleared, Brandon Washington was recently hired as an assistant in the Football Strength and Conditioning area. Baylor was notified on February 4 of Brandon Washington’s arrest and terminated his employment immediately that day.”
“When we arrived at Baylor, we made a commitment to character and integrity in our program,” Rhule said. “Brandon’s actions are completely unacceptable. We will not tolerate conduct that is contradictory to these values.”
Deputies arrested Washington shortly after 12 a.m. Saturday after Washington arrived at the hotel to meet a prostitute, McNamara said.
Washington was released from the McLennan County Jail on Saturday after posting $1,000 bond.
Washington’s arrest comes in the midst of a sexual assault scandal the university has been mired in for more than a year and a half.
The scandal led to the May 26, 2016, firings of former head football coach Art Briles, who was temporarily replaced by Jim Grobe until Rhule was hired, along with former President Ken Starr being removed from the presidency. Starr later resigned as a tenured member of the Baylor Law School faculty.
