Baylor says 'Ken Starr is president' amid speculation (Yahoo Sports)
Baylor University and its president are facing mounting pressure over how the school has handled reports of rape and assault by football players, and the Texas university says its governing board is still considering the results of an internal investigation into the matter. Asked about reports Tuesday that the board of regents had voted to fire school President Ken Starr, university spokeswoman Lori Fogleman said in an email, ''Ken Starr is president and chancellor of Baylor University.'' Fogleman did not elaborate. In a separate statement issued by the university, Baylor said its board has not finished reviewing the report by Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton ''and we anticipate further communication will come after the board completes its deliberations.'' The statement said the private university wouldn't comment on the reports about Starr, which cited unnamed sources.
