Minton’s statement quoted the university as saying, “At the commencement of Coach Beard’s suspension.” The University pledged they would undertake an independent investigation surrounding the claims and make a decision regarding his employment only after they had done so. Without posing a single question to Coach Beard or his fiance, they went ahead and fired him. The university, according to Minton, “violated their agreement with the coach,” he continued.
