- The University of Texas has fired men’s head basketball coach Chris Beard while he faces a domestic violence charge, according to multiple reports.
- The charge stems from an incident with his fiancée, Randi Trew, on Dec. 12. Trew initially said Beard strangled her, but she retracted her statement on Dec. 23.
- “Chris did not strangle me, and I told that to law enforcement that evening,” Trew said. “Chris has stated that he was acting in self-defense, and I do not refute that. I do not believe Chris was trying to intentionally harm me in any way. It was never my intent to have him arrested or prosecuted.”
