The Baylor University board of regents have unanimously voted against a review of the 9-month Pepper Hamilton investigation into the school's handling of sexual assault allegations, stating the initial the report was "complete, fair and accurate."


Former Baylor University head football coach Art Briles has filed a lawsuit against 3 Baylor regents and the school's vice president, according to multiple media reports. 

Baylor University formally introduced Matt Rhule as its new head football coach on Wednesday. Rhule – the university’s 27th head coach – comes to Baylor’s campus in the wake of a sexual assault scandal that saw the firing of Art Briles fired and resignation of athletic director Ian McCaw.

From Texas Standard:

A few weeks ago, the coordinator of Baylor University's Title IX resigned, alleging that the school had prevented her from adequately investigating cases. Baylor denied the charges. But after her resignation, she appeared in a TV interview saying that a group of Baylor administrators “made sure they were protecting the brand, instead of our students.”


Patty Crawford has resigned as Baylor University's first fulltime Title IX coordinator. She will speak tomorrow on "CBS This Morning" to discuss  her resignation and the problems that persist at the university.

You can now hear some of these songs at the Smithsonian’s Museum for African American History and culture – which opens this weekend.
