Newly uncovered text messages allegedly sent by ex-Baylor coach Art Briles show how poorly he handled situations where his football players were involved with drugs, guns and even an incident where a player exposed himself to a woman at a spa.

The texts are part of a lawsuit involving ex-Baylor assistant A.D. Colin Shillinglaw -- he sued the school and several regents for defamation claiming they wrongly lumped him in as one of the main bad guys in the infamous Baylor football scandal.

Several regents responded in court docs -- essentially saying Shillinglaw's suit is just a "smokescreen" to hide the truth about the program under Briles ... and they included several damning text messages to prove their point.

Here are several incidents as summarized in the suit, complete with quotes from the alleged text messages.

-- On April 8, 2011, after a freshman defensive tackle was cited for illegal consumption of alcohol, Coach Briles sent a text message to an assistant coach: Hopefully hes under radar enough they wont recognize name " did he get ticket from Baylor police or Waco? Just trying to keep him away from our judicial affairs folks....

-- On February 11, 2013, an assistant coach notified Coach Briles of a claim by a female student-athlete that a football player brandished a gun at her. Coach Briles responded: what a fool " she reporting to authorities. The assistant coach texted back: Shes acting traumatized Trying to talk her calm now Doesnt seem to want to report though. Coach Briles texted: U gonna talk to [the player]. The assistant coach concluded: Yes sir, just did. Caught him on the way to class Squeezed him pretty good. The matter was never reported to Judicial Affairs.
