While Art Briles “guest coaches” with the worst team in the NFL, things at Baylor University look like they’re going to get worse before they get better. Another former Baylor student filed a new Title IX lawsuit against the university, according to federal court documents filed on Wednesday.
The lawsuit accuses former Baylor running back Devin Chafin of three separate instances of physical assault. Plaintiff Dolores Lozano reported an incident to the police as early as March 2014, in which she claims Chafin grabbed her by the throat and slammed her against a wall.
She claims he then threw her to the floor and kicked her.
Another instance occurred when he slammed her arm against a car in front of other teammates and witnesses. Lozano showed the bruises on her arm to police.
Despite this, Chafin started nine of 13 games for the Bears in 2014.
Chafin was suspended, however, when he was arrested on charges of marijuana possession. That just goes to show the rape culture that was allowed to perpetuate at the school.
Baylor is facing a firestorm of public relations issues as news continues to surface regarding their willful negligence conceding their student-athletes sexual assault crimes. Since the story broke, the head coach Art Briles and his entire staff have been let go.
The athletic director, Title IX coordinator and Chancellor have all stepped down, been fired, been demoted, or a combination thereof.
