Former Baylor University football coach Jim Gosch says he’s never heard of a single football player he coached who’s been arrested or accused of wrongdoing.
Grobe, who coached the Bears to five consecutive national championships, was arrested by Baylor Police for felony domestic violence and a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge on Oct. 3.
The arrest came after a fight at his home.
Grobby has not been charged.
In a statement to CBS News, Grobe said, “I have never been accused of criminal conduct, and I do not condone domestic violence.
I never made any decisions or made any demands that I believed would result in the behavior described in the charges filed against me.
As a former football coach and a leader in the University of Texas, I am committed to fostering a culture of accountability in all aspects of my life and in the lives of those I coach and lead.”
Grobe was fired from Baylor University on Monday, according to a release from the university.
Grobs’ attorney, Brian D. Sager, did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Groebby was an assistant coach for two seasons under Grob by the time he was fired.
Grobes, now the defensive coordinator at Arizona State University, said he did not know Grobs was arrested until news of his arrest broke.
Grobel said he had a good relationship with Grobbys wife, Kelly, and had no problem with her being involved in the incident.
Grobie, a graduate of Texas A&M, said in the statement that he hopes the arrest brings some closure to the family and that he is looking forward to “going to work for a new program” next season.
“I am very grateful for the support of my family and friends, who have been supportive throughout this difficult time.
I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to lead a team and be a coach at Arizona University,” Grobe wrote.
GroBers father, Bob Grobe Sr., was a Texas Tech assistant coach when Grobe left Texas in 2000.
Grover Grobe had been the Longhorns defensive coordinator for two years when he was hired as a full-time assistant in 2009.
Grobys brother, Mike Grobe Jr., is the former defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys.
Groby has coached football in all 50 states and two Canadian provinces.
He was a graduate assistant at Baylor from 1999 to 2000.
Before his coaching career, Grobbe coached in the Texas Tech program for three years.
Groba, who is from South Houston, Texas, was born in Texas and grew up in South Houston.
Grober was the son of former Baylor head coach Art Grobbel, who played at Baylor and was a two-time first-team All-Big 12 Conference selection.
Grobumes father, who retired as a Texas football coach in 2006, died in 2011 at the age of 82.
