Baylor University removed its president and said it plans to fire its head football coach after an investigation found university officials consistently failed to address sexual assault allegations.
Baylor's Board of Regents said former university President Ken Starr will transition to the role of chancellor. Head football coach Art Briles will presumably be sent packing, and athletic director Ian McCaw was put on probation.
The independent investigation found university personnel not only chose not to report complaints to an appropriate administrator but even discouraged those making complaints from going forward.
