Too Much Scandal: Dave Bliss, Baylor basketball coach

Bliss resigned as Baylor basketball coach in August of 2003 after school investigators discovered violations within his program involving improper financial aid and drug tests that were not properly reported. Bliss' resignation, along with that of athletic director Tom Stanton came a day after a memorial service for Patrick Dennehy, whose body was found a month earlier near a rock quarry about six weeks after he was last seen. His former teammate and roommate Carlton Dotson was charged for the crime and is serving a 35-year prison sentence for his murder.
