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.
