Baylor is a top Texas Christian university. Fox News reports that a former Baylor student claims she was assaulted by a football player on two occasions:
My phone rang less than five minutes after I tweeted about Wednesday’s “Outside the Lines” report on more allegations of violence against Baylor football players. It was the first of nine calls and texts I received over the course of the day from college coaches talking about this latest investigation into Baylor’s handling of sexual violence cases involving its program.
“They’re gonna have to fire him, aren’t they?” a veteran college coach asked.
“Him” is head coach Art Briles, the man who took a perennial Big 12 doormat and made it into a powerhouse. Briles even got a fancy new stadium built. The 60-year-old is 32-7 the past three seasons at a place that hadn’t had a single winning season in the 13 years before he took over in 2008.
