… In a motion filed as part of a federal lawsuit filed against Briles and the school, Briles says the school used him as a scapegoat for its sexual assault problem.
“The conclusion is inescapable that the motive of Baylor and the Board of Regents was to use its head football coach and the Baylor athletic department as a camouflage to disguise and distract from its own institutional failure to comply with federal civil rights protections,” Briles’s lawyer wrote in the motion.
… Briles is demanding Baylor turn over its litigation files and the information discovered by law firm Pepper Hamilton in its independent review of the school, claiming he has yet to see the evidence for why Baylor fired him.
Briles is a co-defendant with Baylor in a lawsuit filed by a rape victim. His lawyer says he does not intend to settle.
Embattled former Baylor football coach Art Briles has reached a financial settlement with the university, a longtime regent of the school told the Waco Tribune-Herald, saying, “The Briles era is over.”
Clifton Robinson, a Waco insurance magnate, told the Tribune-Herald that regents held a conference call Thursday night. Robinson said he could not take part in the call and was told Friday that Briles and Baylor had reached a settlement.
That’s pretty much how Jimmy Sexton would negotiate a settlement.
