Texas State Head Coach Danny Kaspar has resigned after allegations were made against him concerning racial comments. Kaspar decided to resign just three months after a former player accused him of making racist remarks.

That player was guard Jaylen Shead, who tweeted that Kaspar disparaged players with racist comments in practices. That tweet was later deleted and Shead transferred to another school. Texas State did move forward with an investigation into the allegations but shared on Tuesday it would not make any statements in regards to it.

Athletic director Larry Teis did announce though that he’s accepted Kaspar’s resignation and that assistant coach Terrence Johnson will take over the program for the upcoming season.
