Gillispie Accused Of Verbal Abuse At Camp

The mother of a teenager at Billy Gillispie’s summer basketball camp claims in a letter to a top school administrator that the former Texas Tech coach repeatedly verbally abused her son.

The woman wrote that other coaches at the camp told her son that Gillispie “likes to pick someone and try to ‘break them’ for some reason, and that the young man wasn’t doing anything wrong, according to a letter to Texas Tech’s chancellor obtained through an open records request.

Gillispie, 52, resigned from Texas Tech on Thursday, citing health concerns after he was hospitalized twice in the past month.
