One note over the line for Texas Wesleyan baseball coach Mike Jeffcoat, a Pine Bluff native. From Fox 16:

Jeffcoat, a coach there for 15 years, was fired over an email he sent to a recruit:

NBCDFW reports that the email sent from Jeffcoat's university email account stated:

"Thanks for the interest in our program. Unfortunately, we are not recruiting players from the state of Colorado. In the past, players have had trouble passing our drug test. We have made a decision to not take a chance on Student-athletes from your state. You can thank your liberal politicians. Best of Luck wherever you decide to play."
The college president said the school condoned no discrimination of any sort. Best of luck, Mike, where you decide to play next. Arkansas might be a possibility, in that we have legalized certain forms of discrimination here.
