Baylor confirms NCAA investigation after sex abuse scandal

27 Juin 2017

Lawyers representing Baylor University confirmed the school is under an NCAA investigation as a result of the sexual assault scandal that played a role in Art Briles' firing as the head football coach.

Up until this point, Baylor officials have been reluctant to confirm whether or not an official investigation from the NCAA was taking place, and the court filing essentially removes all doubt.

Baylor contends the school must maintain the confidentiality of the NCAA's investigation process, though the school could turn over some information to plaintiffs' attorneys who make specific requests.

In May, ESPN had reported that the NCAA had conducted interviews with Baylor officials, former employees and alleged victims. NCAA officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.

Baylor has been marred by scandal for over a year as more than a dozen women have come forward and filed lawsuits alleging the schools mishandled or ignored their rape claims.

In May 2016, Baylor released a findings of fact document compiled by law firm Pepper Hamilton, who had investigated whether the school failed to properly handle accusations of sexual assault committed by members of the football team.
