"After a Baylor University athlete disappeared, and was later found slain, questions were raised about whether coaches knew about drug use and threats among basketball players and whether some players had received improper payments. In a cover - up scheme, Baylor University basketball coach Dave Bliss denied knowledge of any drug use or threats. Bliss also directed players and other coaches to tell investigators that the dead athlete was a drug dealer." This investigation revealed Bliss' record, exposed flaws in the university's drug - testing program, explained how the university bent the rules to accommodate Bliss and examined the record of a new assistant hired after the university promised a clean up.
