Ken Starr to resign as Baylor’s chancellor


In the midst of the sexual assault scandal at Baylor University which cost head coach Art Briles and a number of school administrators their jobs, Ken Starr announced he will be resigning from his role as Baylor’s chancellor.

Starr informed ESPN’s Joe Schad of his decision which he claims is “a matter of conscience.”

“We need to put this horrible experience behind us,” Starr said. “We need to be honest.”

Starr also claimed he “didn’t know what was happening” regarding the alleged mishandling of sexual assault cases involving football players, but he has “willingly accepted responsibility.”

Starr was previously the university’s president before being demoted to his new role. Now, he will step down altogether, but will continue to teach at Baylor’s law school.
