Baylor Fires Football Coach Art Briles

Baylor University has fired head football coach Art Briles amid a rape scandal and the school’s handling of sexual assault allegations.

In an announcement from the Baylor University board of regents made shortly after noon on Thursday, the school also announced that President Ken Starr will be reassigned to chancellor effective May 31 and will remain a professor at Baylor University Law School. Baylor also has sanctioned athletic director Ian McCaw and placed him on probation. The school also has dismissed additional members of the school’s administration and athletic department.

The announcement comes as a result of an independent and external review led by Philadelphia-based law firm Pepper Hamilton.
