When last we saw former Baylor AD Ian McCaw in these parts, he was being hung out to dry by his ex-employer in fairly spectacular fashion.
In early 2015, Baylor’s Title IX Office first learned of the sexual assault allegation in connection with three other reports of sexual assault involving multiple football players. At the time, the Athletic Director was asked if he had any prior knowledge of an alleged gang rape within the football program. He denied having any knowledge of the alleged incident. Later in 2015, for the first time, the Athletic Director acknowledged that the student-athlete’s head coach told him about this report in 2013. The Athletic Director explained that he did not take any action, including reporting the alleged sexual assault to Judicial Affairs, because he thought the victim did not want to report the incident.[Emphasis added.]
As I posted at the time, first McCaw lied and then he tried to justify his decision to bury the complaint. Pretty bad, eh?
Evidently not bad enough.
Not exactly the best choice of words there, Jerry, old boy. On the other hand, it appears Art Briles may have just found his safe space.
