Baylor Football Accused of 4 Gang Rapes

According to regents at Baylor University, 19 of the school’s football players were accused of sexual assault by 17 women since 2011, including four alleged gang rapes. Art Briles, Baylor’s former football coach, was fired in May for not properly addressing the claims of sexual assault. The Wall Street Journal spoke with regents who claimed that Briles knew about an alleged sexual assault and did nothing about it. “There was a cultural issue there that was putting winning football games above everything else, including our values,” J. Cary Gray, one of the regents, said. “We did not have a caring community when it came to these women who reported that they were assaulted. And that is not OK.”
