What happened to Coach Bliss?

Coach Dave Bliss had to resign from Baylor after the 20002-2003 season, leaving a 61-57 (.517) record behind him, but also a shameful story that will hunt him probably for the rest of his life and that was documented in Showtime’s documentary Disgraced, which tells Bliss’ booster payments to players at Baylor and Southern Methodist University.
He and the coaching staff at Baylor ignored the use of drugs and alcohol among players, Bliss denied paying tuition of Corey Herring and Patrick Dennehy, he told investigators Patrick paid his tuition by dealing drugs.  He flew to Herring’s hometown to convince Mrs. Herring about lying about paying’s her son’s tuition, pretended to be Herring’s dad when he called the university’s financial aid offices to check on Corey’s paychecks and determine what evidence the NCAA had against him. The NCAA gave him a ten-year show-cause penalty.

Faith is crucial for the Drew family; Kelly’s husband is known for being a Christian and is always trying to teach his players the importance of Christian values. In a demanding profession such as college coaching, it is known wives are key to their success.

Mrs. Drew is first and foremost a wife and a dedicated mother, but Kelly Drew and her husband created their own scholarship fund to help student-athletes attending Baylor. Not many more details are known about the blonde, who apparently enjoys a low profile role and prefers to leave all the attention to her hubby.
