Texas fires Chris Beard amid domestic violence charge, despite fiancée retracting statement: reports

Jan 6, 2023

The University of Texas has fired men's head basketball coach Chris Beard while he faces a domestic violence charge, according to multiple reports.

The charge stems from an incident with his fiancée, Randi Trew, on Dec. 12. Trew initially said Beard strangled her, but she retracted her statement on Dec. 23.

"Chris did not strangle me, and I told that to law enforcement that evening," Trew said. "Chris has stated that he was acting in self-defense, and I do not refute that. I do not believe Chris was trying to intentionally harm me in any way. It was never my intent to have him arrested or prosecuted."
