    Texas Wesleyan University has fired baseball coach Mike Jeffcoat for sending an email to a high school prospect saying the school doesn't recruit players from the state of Colorado because of failed drug tests.

    Jeffcoat, a former MLB pitcher, was fired for "his remarks as well as the NAIA violations under his watch," university president Fred Slabach told reporters Thursday.

    "This university and its athletic program does not discriminate on the basis of the public policy of any state," Slabach said. "We look at the individual student. We care about those students."
