Report: Baylor president Ken Starr expected to be fired by board of regents

In the wake of the sexual assault scandal surrounding the Baylor Bears football program, university president Ken Starr could find himself on the outs. According to a report from HornsDigest.com, the Baylor board of regents are planning to fire Starr.

Rather than holding head football coach Art Briles responsible for the gross negligence regarding the serious sexual assault and rap allegations, the board of regents believes the blame should fall on the university president.

If the report proves to be true, Starr, who has held the position at Baylor for the last six years, could be ousted by the end of the month.

Were Starr to be fired, Baylor’s senior vice president of operations and chief financial officer Reagan Ramsower has been identified as a strong candidate to fill the vacancy.

This is only the beginning of the fallout from such a severe, disgusting report that showed Baylor officials ignored reports of rape and sexual assault over the course of the last five years. While Starr could be the scapegoat for now, it would not be surprising to see Briles booted from his position before the season begins.
