Greg McDermot was fired from Baylor for violating the school’s code of conduct.
He was also fined $500,000 and banned from coaching.
He has since left Baylor.
He wrote in a column for the Baylor Chronicle that he felt that Baylor’s new culture is “a disaster waiting to happen.”
“The football team has been treated as second-class citizens, the locker room has been a haven for sexual predators and the locker rooms have been a place where sexual assault has been happening,” McDermots column said.
“I felt that the Baylor University was failing as a school and a people and it’s time for me to step down.
I’m done with the Baylor Bears and am leaving Baylor.”
McDermott, a former Baylor assistant coach, was fired on Feb. 9 after being accused of sexual assault.
He did not respond to a request for comment from the Associated Press.
Baylor has since hired former Utah head coach Todd Graham as the schools first full-time head coach.
