Now Baylor Is Thinking Of Keeping Art Briles & Suspending Him For A Year
Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports
According to a report from Chip Brown of Scout.com ,Baylor regents are meeting on Monday to decided if they should keep the recently fired head coach Art Briles and reduce his punishment to a one-year suspension.
quote:

There are those among the Baylor leadership who feel the major failings of the BU rape scandal fall on former president Ken Starr for the school not having a Title IX coordinator from 2011-2014, sources said. If BU had a Title IX coordinator, the football coaching staff would have had training on how to handle any complaints of rape made against football players, sources said.

Those members of the BU leadership who say Briles should have been spared while Starr should have been the fall guy for the scandal are getting a lot of pressure from big-money donors who say they'll stop giving to the university if Briles isn't brought back as coach in 2017, sources said.

If the votes aren't there to bring back Briles after a one-year suspension, the school would likely settle with Briles for between $15 million and $25 million, sources said. Briles had eight years and just under $40 million guaranteed left on his contract at Baylor, sources told HD.
You think he's coming back?

Why would they owe him money? Why would this not fall under termination, with cause? And if they allow him back, I would think female enrollment will drop.

It's pathetic the NCAA is more likely to punish a program for providing free food and lodging than they are for deliberately covering up rape. What the frick have we become?

Worst PR move they could possibly do short of publicly announcing "F__K You" to any victims.

Sounds like neither Baylor nor Briles have learned anything from this whole situation.

"getting a lot of pressure from big-money donors who say they'll stop giving to the university if Briles isn't brought back as coach in 2017" Win at all costs is what got them in this position. I am sure they already have their eye on a few players across the nation with criminal records, off the field issues, and on the field production. And they wonder why no one likes them. LOL

LOL...Art Briles needs a f'ing graduate student to tell him how to handle predatory football players? Gotta love the bible college's willingness to give second (third? fourth?) chances to a guy who clearly has no clue
