Baylor has fired newly hired assistant strength coach Brandon Washington after he was arrested in a Waco prostitution sting.

McLennan County (Texas) Sheriff Parnell McNamara says deputies arrested the 33-year-old coach at a Waco-area hotel on a prostitution solicitation charge, a Class B misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine. A Baylor spokesperson said in a statement that Washington's employment was immediately terminated that day.

Washington had been recently hired after previously working for new Baylor football coach Matt Rhule at Temple for the past three years. According to the school, Washington passed a criminal background check before his hiring.

"When we arrived at Baylor, we made a commitment to character and integrity in our program," Rhule said in a statement. "Brandon's actions are completely unacceptable. We will not tolerate conduct that is contradictory to these values."

Rhule was hired in December to help reform Baylor's football program in the midst of the university's ongoing sexual-assault scandal that resulted in the firing of football coach Art Briles and the departures of athletic director Ian McCaw and president Ken Starr.
