The Waco Tribune-Herald’s Tommy Witherspoon broke the story:
McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Brandon Washington, 33, was arrested by deputies at a local hotel on a solicitation of prostitution charge, a Class B misdemeanor.
The sheriff identified Washington as a strength coach at Baylor. Baylor confirmed that Washington was employed by Baylor when he was arrested early Saturday, but said he was immediately fired upon the school learning of the arrest. County records identify Washington as an employee of 1090 Athletics.
Washington was brought over from Temple.
Baylor Athletic Communications Director David Kaye tells me the University was notified on February 4 and fired Washington "immediately."— Stephen Adams (@_Stephen_Adams) February 7, 2017

Again, terrible news out of Baylor. Hate to see so many great people there overshadowed by more pathetic displays of leadership.— Sam Ponder (@sam_ponder) February 7, 2017
