AUSTIN, Texas – Baylor University will be looking to rebuild its reputation and perhaps its football program.
An outside review found administrators mishandled allegations of sexual assault and the team ran with an attitude that it was above the rules.
The largest Baptist school in the U.S. took the first steps toward change Thursday when regents demoted high-profile President Ken Starr, a former prosecutor who investigated the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal. The school also fired football coach Art Briles, who turned the football program from a laughing stock into a Big 12 powerhouse.
But that may not end the scrutiny.
More fallout could be coming if the report by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton attracts the attention of the U.S. Department of Education, the NCAA or even criminal prosecutors.
