Baylor uncovers Bliss Lied to his Staff

    Late Friday night, Baylor University officials uncovered recorded conversations in which former Baylor Basketball coach Dave Bliss, in which he told his assistant coachs and players to lie to authorities, and say that Patrick Dennehy paid for school by dealing drugs. 

  Bliss was trying to cover up the fact that he paid Dennehy's schooling which was a direct violation of NCAA rules. Copies of the tapes of conversations between Bliss and his players and coachs, were obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The review committee found no evidence that Dennehy was ever involved in drug dealing. Dennehy's family was outraged. His stepfather, Brian Brabazon, broke down into tears twice during a telephone interview from his home in Nevada.
