Texas A&M has suspended two assistant football coaches for two weeks for what they described as a ”failed attempt at humor” this week at a football clinic for women. Coach Kevin Sumlin announced Friday night that offensive line coach Jim Turner and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks have been suspended without pay and will have to serve 20 hours of community service. The assistant coaches’ presentation at the Chalk Talk clinic Wednesday night included slides with tips for blocking that had double entendre and what could be construed as sexual references.

The sexual assault scandal that took down Baylor University’s president and revered football coach also found a problem with a bedrock of the school’s faith-based education: a student conduct code banning alcohol, drugs and premarital sex that may have driven some victims into silence. Investigators with the Pepper Hamilton law firm who dug into Baylor’s response to sexual assault claims determined the school’s rigid approach to drugs, alcohol and sex and ”perceived judgmental responses” to victims who reported being raped ”created barriers” to reporting assaults. ”A number of victims were told that if they made a report of rape, their parents would be informed of the details of where they were and what they were doing,” said Chad Dunn, a Houston attorney who represents six women who have sued Baylor under the anonymous identification of Jane Doe.

Lamar Thomas is never short on words, chatting up anything and anybody no matter the subject. Thomas is among five new assistants brought in by Wildcats coach Mark Stoops this season in hopes of making the program’s first bowl appearance since 2010. Thomas arrives after two seasons at rival Louisville, which has denied Kentucky that critical sixth victory necessary for bowl eligibility the past two seasons thanks to a dynamic receiver corps he coached.

Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck would love to be able to go toe to toe with Jim Harbaugh, bouncing around to all sorts of satellite camps in the offseason. Fleck and other coaches in the Mid-American Conference can certainly benefit from satellite camps, but the issue remains a complicated one.
