According to a report in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, first-year Texas Christian University head coach Sam Busch has resigned. Busch was placed on paid administrative leave in early February so that the athletic department could conduct “an internal inquiry into program rules, policy and procedure violations.”

While the findings of that inquiry were not made public, TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati did provide a brief comment according to the report in the Star Telegram: “Coach Busch cooperated with our internal inquiry…After reviewing the facts with us, he decided to resign. I have accepted his resignation, and we wish him the best in his future coaching endeavors.”

Busch was originally hired to lead the program back in August, replacing long-time coach Richard Sybesma, who retired after 38 years at the helm of TCU. Busch had previously been the assistant coach at Virginia for the last four years under his brother, Augie Busch. Assistant Coach Keith Dawley will lead TCU through the upcoming Big 12 Championships, which are from February 21-24 at the University of Texas.
