WACO, Texas (AP/KXAN) — Former Baylor President Ken Starr is resigning his post as a law school professor, severing ties with the faith-based campus still reeling from a sexual assault scandal.
Starr lost his job as president and chancellor in May in a sexual assault scandal involving the school’s vaunted football team that also ousted coach Art Briles. Baylor said in a statement Friday that Starr “will be leaving his faculty status and tenure” in a separation that was mutually agreed upon. It was his last Baylor post.
Starr is best known for zealously pursuing charges against former U.S. President Bill Clinton in a White House sex scandal. He was removed as president of the nation’s largest Baptist university after a scathing review found the school did little to respond to accusations of sexual assault involving football players.
A federal lawsuit was filed in June by a former Baylor student, who was the third to claim the school was indifferent to or ignored claims of sexual assault and didn’t enforce federal general discrimination protections. The woman identified only as Jane Doe, says she was drugged and abducted from an off-campus residence known as “The Rugby House” in February 2015.
