The school announced Thursday it has suspended coach Art Briles with intent to terminate him after eight seasons.

In addition, school president Ken Starr has been removed as president and will transitions into role of chancellor; he remains a professor at the Baylor law school. Dr. David Garland has been named interim university president. Athletic director Ian McCaw has been sanctioned and placed on probation.

Garland apologized to Baylor's students, alumni and supporters for the school's handling of sexual assaults.

A person with direct knowledge of the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter said that the Baylor Board of Regents did not view any of the three key leaders involved in the sexual assault scandal — Briles, Starr or McCaw — as irreplaceable, and that the football program had reached a level of success that it would not backslide to the bottom of the Big 12 were Briles no longer the coach.

Baylor has gone 50-15 during the past five seasons under Briles, winning a pair of Big 12 Conference championships and reaching two New Year's Six bowl games...

Official release from Baylor: http://www.baylor.edu/mediacommunications/news.php?action=story&story=170207

Baylor University Board of Regents announces leadership changes and extensive corrective actions following findings of external investigation
May 26, 2016

Board of Regents apologizes to Baylor Nation; Dr. David Garland named interim University President; Ken Starr transitions to role of Chancellor and remains professor at Baylor University Law School; Head Football Coach Art Briles suspended with intent to terminate; Athletic Director Ian McCaw sanctioned and placed on probation; University self-reports to NCAA; Task Force responsible for implementing recommendations formed and operative; Findings of Fact and Recommendations made available

WACO, Texas (May 26, 2016) – In Fall 2015, Baylor University's Board of Regents engaged outside counsel Pepper Hamilton, LLP (Pepper) to conduct an independent and external review of Baylor's institutional response to Title IX and related compliance issues through the lens of specific cases.

Key findings of the investigation reflect a fundamental failure by Baylor to implement Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA). The findings include:

    The University's student conduct processes were wholly inadequate to consistently provide a prompt and equitable response under Title IX; Baylor failed to consistently support complainants through the provision of interim measures; and in some cases, the University failed to take action to identify and eliminate a potential hostile environment, prevent its recurrence or address its effects.

    Actions by University administrators directly discouraged some complainants from reporting or participating in student conduct processes and in one instance constituted retaliation against a complainant for reporting sexual assault.

    In addition to broader University failings, Pepper found specific failings within both the football program and Athletics department leadership, including a failure to identify and respond to a pattern of sexual violence by a football player and to a report of dating violence.

    There are significant concerns about the tone and culture within Baylor's football program as it relates to accountability for all forms of student athlete misconduct.

    Over the course of their review, Pepper investigated the University's response to reports of a sexual assault involving multiple football players. The football program and Athletics department leadership failed to take appropriate action in response to these reports.

“We were horrified by the extent of these acts of sexual violence on our campus. This investigation revealed the University's mishandling of reports in what should have been a supportive, responsive and caring environment for students,” said Richard Willis, chair of the Baylor Board of Regents. “The depth to which these acts occurred shocked and outraged us. Our students and their families deserve more, and we have committed our full attention to improving our processes, establishing accountability and ensuring appropriate actions are taken to support former, current and future students.”

Pepper's review was detailed, thorough and rigorous. Pepper had unfettered access to Baylor faculty, staff and administration. Pepper also spoke with students who have been impacted by interpersonal violence. Pepper Hamilton examined more than a million pieces of information – from correspondence to interviews to reports. The experiences of students impacted by interpersonal violence played a significant role in the investigation into the University's response. While those experiences informed the findings, the details of individual cases are protected by Federal law and will not be referenced in any document made public by the University.

“We, as the governing Board of this University, offer our apologies to the many who sought help from the University.  We are deeply sorry for the harm that survivors have endured,” said Ron Murff, chair-elect of the Baylor Board of Regents. “Baylor's mission to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community remains our primary imperative. The Board has taken decisive action to ensure the University's priorities are aligned with our unyielding commitment to that mission.”

OUTCOME OF INVESTIGATION

Following Pepper's comprehensive briefing, the Board charted a course of action that it believes is in the best interest of students and the long-term wellbeing of the University.

“We were asked to provide a thorough and candid assessment. Baylor allowed us to follow the facts, without influence or interference, wherever they led, and Baylor's Board of Regents openly received sobering findings of failure within football, the Athletics Department and the University as a whole,” said Gina Maisto Smith and Leslie M. Gomez, partners with Pepper Hamilton, LLP. “We believe the choice to share these findings of fact publicly and acknowledge past failures is an important step for the University as it implements the recommendations derived from these findings.”

PERSONNEL DECISIONS

The Pepper findings revealed a lack of strong institutional management and control on a number of levels. The Board's actions reflect a focus on the points at which the most significant levels of accountability and obligation should have been exercised.

“We have made these decisions, because, above all, we must safeguard our students and our campus,” said Willis. “We must set a new course to ensure the leaders of the University place a premium on responding effectively and with sensitivity to those impacted by the tragedy of interpersonal violence.”

The following personnel changes are effective immediately.

    Ken Starr will no longer serve in the role of President of Baylor University effective May 31. David Garland, former dean and professor at Baylor's George W. Truett Theological Seminary, will serve as Interim President of Baylor University while the University initiates a search for its next President. Garland previously served as Baylor's interim President from August 2008 to May 2010. Starr remains the Louise L. Morrison Chair of Constitutional Law in Baylor's Law School and has agreed in principle to serve as Chancellor on terms that are still being discussed.

    Effective immediately, Head Football Coach Art Briles has been suspended indefinitely with intent to terminate according to contractual procedures.

    Ian McCaw has been sanctioned and placed on probation. McCaw will work with University leadership and the Board of Regents to implement the recommendations as they relate to the restoration of a tone of accountability within the football program, to effective oversight and controls of the Athletics department, and to critically needed changes that will re-align the Athletics program with the University mission.

    Additional members of the Administration and Athletics program have also been dismissed. Neither these individuals nor the disciplinary actions will be identified publicly.

    Greg Jones, as Executive Vice President and Provost, serves as second in command and will continue to have responsibility for the academic enterprise and fulfillment of the University's Christian mission. 

    The roles of members of several University departments will be clarified and staff will be engaged in continuing and robust training before the start of the Fall 2016 semester.

    The overall business operations of the University, including Athletics, will be executed primarily through Dr. Reagan Ramsower, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

    The Board of Regents has created the full-time position of Chief Compliance Officer that will report directly to the Office of the President.

PROCESS ACTIONS

In addition to personnel changes, it is imperative the University leverages the investigation's findings to institute improvements to better strengthen its ability to prevent, investigate and respond to acts of interpersonal violence and care for those who are affected by these acts. The University has retained the services of Rick Evrard, of Bond, Schoenech & King, PLLC, and has made contact with the NCAA to initially discuss potential infractions and to offer full cooperation with any resulting investigation.

Pepper provided recommendations to address deficiencies and process failures as outlined in the Findings of Fact. Among the areas of focus where improvements have been recommended:

    Remedial and Restorative Remedies: Baylor will review all cases of interpersonal violence over the past three academic years, to offer remedies, identify any current need for investigation, or isolate any broad pattern or cultural implications. Consistent with Title IX, Baylor will contact victims and offer specific remedies to the individuals identified in Pepper's review.

    Title IX: The work of the Title IX office, established in November 2014, provides prevention training, engages student advocates and supports those who experience interpersonal violence. Improvements call for clarifying roles and responsibilities within the office, better utilizing case management tools to coordinate care and support, and providing leadership to coordinate information across University functions. In addition, standardized protocols will be established to balance individual requests for anonymity with broader campus safety obligations. Other recommendations include committing sufficient infrastructure and resources to the Title IX office and support from senior leadership to ensure appropriate and informed administrative oversight.

    Athletics: A wide range of changes will be implemented in Baylor's Athletics policies and procedures. The overall operations of the Athletics department will be integrated into the mainstream operations of the University. Significant attention will be given to ensuring policies are consistent across all students and student-athletes alike with consistent protocols that eliminate any appearance of preferential treatment. The University will create and maintain a culture of high moral standards among student-athletes and leadership to ensure Baylor Athletics places paramount importance on student welfare and abides by Title IX reporting obligations. The University will review policies and protocols regarding transfers and recruits as well as opportunities for Athletics personnel to integrate across non-athletics programs within the University.   

    Engagement & Education: The role of training, education and engagement of the entire Baylor community is vital to the successful transformation of our campus culture. A renewed emphasis on our faith commitment will permeate the work we do in this area over the coming months and years. Annual training will be required for all students, faculty, employees and contractors, with additional trauma-informed training for implementers, investigators and adjudicators. Additional focus will be given to establishing expectations for student organizations and interest groups as well as greater community engagement within campus residence halls. Additionally, the University will evaluate the climate on campus and undertake a more concerted effort to openly discuss prevention of and response to interpersonal violence.

    Centralized Reporting and Resolution: A centralized hub of student conduct information will provide a level of “early warning” for those students who are at risk or who may place others at risk. The University will ensure the accountability of employees by making clear the violation of reporting obligations could be cause for discharge. Additionally, processes will be put in place to ensure all instances of interpersonal violence, regardless of where they originate, will be evaluated under the Title IX office.

    Public Safety: Baylor has placed a priority on improving its professional public safety office with the hiring of new leadership and additional experienced officers. Continued training, the establishment of community partnerships and stronger collaboration among area law enforcement will be a focus of improvement. Improvements will also focus on establishing clear protocols for supporting the needs of individuals who have experienced interpersonal violence and establishing partnerships with advocacy organizations. The University will also revisit its protocol for sharing information between Waco Police Department and Baylor University Police Department.

    Counseling and Advocacy: With more than $5 million allocated to improvements and staffing in the Baylor Counseling Center in the coming year, efforts are already underway to improve services, support, and access to this vital resource. Additional work will be done to enhance after-hours access and emergency crisis availability and coordination with Title IX staff. The University will establish dedicated victim-advocacy services for students who need help navigating recovery and continued pursuit of their education after an incident of assault.

“Undergirding our work to implement the recommendations of Pepper Hamilton is a firm commitment to care for and develop the whole person – body, mind and spirit,” said Kevin Jackson, Vice President for Student Life. “We will continue to provide opportunities that help each student grow in their faith and become the person God has designed them to be. We commit to illustrate God's love and grace and to help them grow their own deep roots that hold them firmly in God's will for their lives.“

EXECUTIVE-LEVEL TASK FORCE ON IMPLEMENTATION

An Executive-Level Task Force on Implementation, established by the Baylor Board of Regents, will act promptly to address Pepper's recommendations in the areas outlined above, Remedial and Restorative Remedies, Title IX, Athletics, Engagement and Education, Centralized Reporting and Resolution, Public Safety, and Counseling and Advocacy, as well as other areas across the University.

The Task Force, which is led by Dr. Ramsower, includes implementation groups comprised of members of Baylor's faculty, staff and administration who share responsibility for identified areas and the holistic well-being of students in our campus community.

Within the coming weeks, the Task Force will identify areas where improvements are already underway, areas for immediate implementation and areas for more thorough consideration. The Task Force and implementation groups will assess best practices across other universities, implement more complex recommendations by Pepper Hamilton and continue to move Baylor forward along a path of improvement.

Periodic announcements will chronicle the work of the Task Force and implementation groups as they make improvements.

FINDINGS OF FACT

The Findings of Fact, developed by the Board with guidance from Pepper, is available on the University website. Within the Findings of Fact, readers will find detailed assessments of system failures and comprehensive list of recommendations. These recommendations provide a roadmap for next steps and are based on industry best practices and Pepper's extensive experience helping universities nationwide establish systems to safeguard students, faculty and staff from sexual violence and take steps to ensure robust response and procedures.

Over the course of the investigation, a special committee of the Board of Regents was periodically updated on Pepper's work. Additionally, in early May, Pepper presented their findings of fact and recommendations to Board leadership in Philadelphia and was onsite to brief the full Board during its May meeting in Waco. While no written report has been prepared, the Findings of Fact reflect the thorough briefings provided by Pepper and fully communicates the need for immediate action to remedy past harms, to provide accountability for University administrators and to make significant changes that can no longer wait.

“We believe these Findings of Fact are forthright and critical to rebuild trust in Baylor University,” said Murff. “The Board was adamant that Pepper Hamilton's findings and recommendations be shared with the community with as much detail as possible.”

Starr spent lots of public funds in order to destroy a president and create a culture for the Republicans who have emulated him ever since, rather than governing. IMHO.


Bill Clinton, is responsible for his own scandals, nobody else.  If he had been taking care of presidential govt. business, instead of interns, there would have been no scandal.

Well this is certainly a case in which I was proven totally wrong when it came to the firing of Briles. Several days ago I proclaimed that I thought that Starr would be the ultimate scape goat and that AB would eventually walk away without any dirt sticking to him. However, after perusing the report from the Philly law firm hired to investigate the whole sordid mess I can certainly understand why the hammer ended up coming down on the ultimate root of the problem. Yes, no doubt the school's administration bears a whole ton of blame on the total mishandling of the allegations. However, the true enabler was Briles himself. I think it will be VERY interesting to see if further heads roll, and that includes certain assistants who doubtless aided and abetted the continued bad behavior.

Vantage, I just don't see how ANY of Briles Staff will be at Baylor in the coming weeks. I agree, it will be very interesting to see how this plays out and who else gets the ax. But there is NO WAY that anyone will be left once Baylor announces a New Head Coach... The only reason I feel that any Staff is there is now is simply to hold the Team together and salvage this last recruiting class.

On another note, have you or others here taken a peek at Baylor's Message Board. The one on 24/7 is called the "Bears Truth". And consensus is that Briles has fallen prey to the rampant PC culture that has swept the country and that an overzealous media is to blame for "blowing this whole thing out of proportion". YCMTSU.

Warning, you will need to take a shower after reading some of this garbage that is being written some some of Baylor's most uptight and righteous.  :-X :puke:

Pretty much. It was a big waste of time but nobody put a gun to anybody's head and made them leave a bread crumb trail of poor ethics and untruthful statements under oath.

I like Clinton. I also believe that when you do dirt, don't get mad when someone tracks it back to you. Even if it is petty. In fact, on that level, ESPECIALLY if it is petty.

Waco letter to the editor says Art Briles did nothing wrong, faults female students for "frolicking at nightclubs." http://www.wacotrib.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/letters-readers-sound-off-on-baylor-tumult-its-many-victims/article_8f803d98-97af-5b04-aff9-56f29cc01f6c.html

...As you can tell, this upsets me as a fan but more as a human being. Rape and sexual assault obviously have no place in our society. However, universities can do only so much to prevent female students from frolicking at nightclubs and then retreating to athletes’ apartments after both have been drinking. At some point all parties must take responsibility for their actions...

Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw stepped down Monday, not long after the school named former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe as its interim football coach.

Quote
In the fall of 2015, Baylor hired Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton to review its past treatment of sexual assault claims. ESPN's Outside the Lines reported last week that some Baylor officials, including coaches, knew about incidents of sexual assault, domestic violence and other acts of violence involving football players, but most players didn't miss playing time as punishment.

In its report, Pepper Hamilton wrote: "There are significant concerns about the tone and culture within Baylor's football program as it relates to accountability for all forms of student athlete misconduct."

Two Baylor players accused of sexual assault were recruited by Briles after they were dismissed from their previous schools for off-field problems...

Art Briles said in a statement sent first to News 10's Julie Hays that he "can only assume that the [Pepper Hamilton] report, which is not independent, supports the conclusions that the board has already drawn.”

In the statement sent Thursday morning, Briles also said he had not seen the Pepper Hamilton report, and that he is “contractually obligated to remain silent on the matter.” He admits making mistakes, but says the full scope of what happened has not been disclosed.

“After 38 years of coaching, I have certainly made mistakes, and, in hindsight, I would have done certain things differently. I always strive to be a better coach, a better father and husband, and a better person.”

Briles also addresses the victims of abuse saying, “My heart goes out to the victims for the pain that they have endured. Sexual assault has no place on our campus or in our society. As a father of two daughters, a grandfather, and a husband, my prayers are with the victims of abuse, wherever they are.”

Briles says he hopes to speak about what he knew about the sexual assaults on campus, saying, “I hope to share with you what I was aware of as soon as I can so Baylor Nation can begin the healing process.”

Last Thursday, Baylor’s Board of Regents fired Briles...

  • It's not revenge he's after. It's a reckoning.

If he had any decency, Starr should resign. He deserves nothing but scorn and undying humiliation not matter how uninvolved he may or may not have been.

I can't believe he was trying to stay on as chancellor after resigning as president.

Now he is resigning as chancellor but is going to continue to teach.

Just kick his tail out the door!  I don't understand why institutions won't part ways with folks like this (add John White to that list).

  • Guessing is easier than actually trying!

On another note, have you or others here taken a peek at Baylor's Message Board. The one on 24/7 is called the "Bears Truth". And consensus is that Briles has fallen prey to the rampant PC culture that has swept the country and that an overzealous media is to blame for "blowing this whole thing out of proportion". YCMTSU.

Warning, you will need to take a shower after reading some of this garbage that is being written some some of Baylor's most uptight and righteous. :-X :puke:

Considering which school that is I would expect them to be uptight and righteous..........................and also judgmental and hypocritical.

Probably the only way to keep his reputation intact.  Might also keep him from being named in a lawsuit or three.
