Starr No Longer Chancellor At Baylor

By Ben Kercheval (CBS Sports)

Ken Starr, who previously served as Baylor’s president before being reassigned to chancellor, has told ESPN he is resigning from that position.

Starr is stepping down as “a matter of conscience” and will remain a professor¬†at Baylor’s law school.

Speaking on ESPN’s Outside the Lines hours after the report, Starr maintained he was ignorant to the allegations and incidents of sexual assault, noting specifically the violence was off campus where drinking is allowed:

Starr also said Baylor was “unapologetically Christian” and “that is why these episodes of sexual violence are so grievous.”

Last week, Baylor released 13-pages documenting the school’s failures in dealing with allegations of assault involving members of the football team. The findings stem from Pepper Hamilton’s independent investigation of the school and athletic department.

In response to Hamilton’s findings, Baylor suspended Briles with intent to terminate. Starr was reassigned and athletic director Ian McCaw was sanctioned and placed on probation. ¬†Earlier this week, Baylor announced McCaw resigned but not before hiring former Jim Grobe as acting head coach for the 2016 season.
