Texas college football coach fired after investigation finds he gave students false information
- by admin
SOMERSET, Texas — A Texas college coach has been fired after investigators found he provided students false and misleading information about how to administer the state’s alcohol-prevention laws, the college’s governing board said Tuesday.
The Texas Tribune reports that Travis County District Attorney Kevin Johnson announced the firing of Tim Tompkins, who was hired last month as the interim head coach at Somerset Community College.
The Board of Regents, which oversees the college system, said Tompaks violated school policies by not telling students how to properly administer the law, such as how to check a bottle or how to determine if a driver is under the influence.
The board found that Tompak had violated the school’s alcohol prevention policy in the wake of a July 19 shooting that left four people dead at a college party.
Tompks’ lawyer said the investigation was not comprehensive enough to find Tompas crimes.
“We are grateful to the Travis County district attorney for taking swift action to remove the man from the college,” said Tom Pate, a board member.
The Travis County DA’s office said the district attorney’s office was aware of the investigation, and a news release did not specify what happened to Tompakes employment.
Tompkins has not responded to requests for comment.
