Ex-Baylor AD denies mishandling assault claim

A former athletics director for Baylor University denies that he failed to properly respond to sexual assault allegations against a football player.

Ian McCaw, now the AD at Liberty, defended himself in a court filing Friday against accusations by Jasmin Hernandez, who was raped by former player Tevin Elliott. Elliott was convicted in 2014 and is serving a 20-year prison sentence.

McCaw argues that after he notified former head football coach Art Briles of the allegations, Briles indefinitely suspended Elliott from the team.

A judge earlier this month ruled that Hernandez's lawsuit against the school can proceed to trial. She contends the university violated Title IX by disregarding multiple rape claims against Elliott.
