Big 12 Asks Baylor for ‘Full Accounting' of Sex Assault Investigation

The Big 12 is asking Baylor for a "full accounting" of the investigation into how sexual assault allegations were handled at the school, including information that hasn't been released publicly.

The conference said Commissioner Bob Bowlsby sent a letter to Baylor interim President David Garland "once again" requesting all documents associated the investigations.

“All of our member universities consider student safety and security to be paramount among institutional responsibilities,” said Bowlsby.  “The Big 12 Board of Directors, each member of the Conference and its student-athletes want to convey that our thoughts, concerns and sympathies are with the Baylor survivors and their families.”

The Big 12 is requesting written materials as well as any information that has been conveyed orally to Baylor leadership and its board of regents.

An investigation by the law firm Pepper Hamilton, commissioned by Baylor, led to the firing of football coach Art Briles, the demotion of President Kenneth Starr to chancellor and sanctions for athletic director Ian McCaw.

Starr and McCaw have both since resigned.
