Previously, the Utes suspended Scalley indefinitely while looking into the matter. Scalley apologized for the text after it was referenced on social media, calling it a "terrible mistake" that was "offensive and hurtful to not only the African American community, but to all."
The program has withdrawn a verbal offer to make Scalley the "head coach in waiting," and his multi-year contract that was worth $1.1 million annually is being amended to a one-year contract for $525,000. Additionally, he will participate in education on diversity and inclusion.
Utah hired an external firm to investigate whether the text was an isolated incident or part of a pattern of behavior.
To whom Scalley sent the message remains unclear.
