A statement released by the university Friday night said Baylor and Briles ”agreed to terminate their employment relationship.” The move was effective immediately. ”Both parties acknowledge that there were serious shortcomings in the response to reports of sexual violence by some student-athletes, including deficiencies in University processes and the delegation of disciplinary responsibilities with the football program,” said part of what was called a joint statement from Baylor and Briles. Briles’ lawyers had told a federal court June 16 that he wanted attorneys separate from Baylor and had no intention of settling the lawsuit filed by a woman who was raped by a Baylor football player.

North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham is hopeful the school is finally near the end of its long-running academic fraud scandal. The school is a month away from its 90-day deadline to respond to the NCAA’s latest Notice of Allegations (NOA), which outlined five serious charges that include lack of institutional control. In an interview with The Associated Press, Cunningham said UNC will meet that deadline – there had previously been an eight-month hiccup in the process – in a case that hung over a strong 2015-16 sports season.

Penn State’s former top lawyer said in a deposition made public Thursday he advised the university’s vice president in 2001 to notify a state agency of a complaint from an assistant football coach about Jerry Sandusky showering with a boy in a team locker room. Former university general counsel Wendell Courtney also said in the deposition three weeks ago that no one from Penn State has ever asked him for details regarding his Feb. 11, 2001, phone discussion with then-vice president Gary Schultz or the research he did that day on reporting suspected child abuse. Excerpts from the deposition were attached to a filing by lawyers for former assistant coach Mike McQueary in opposing the university’s effort to delay McQueary’s whistleblower and defamation lawsuit against Penn State.
