Kenneth Starr has resigned as chancellor of Baylor University in Texas. His resignation comes after Starr was demoted from his post as Baylor’s president last week amid a shakeup over the university’s mishandling of reports of sexual assault by football players. The firestorm has also prompted the resignation of Baylor’s athletic director and firing of its head football coach. An investigation ordered by Baylor’s Board of Regents found officials discouraged reports of sexual assault, treated the football program as “above the rules,” and even retaliated against someone who reported sexual assault. Before heading Baylor, Kenneth Starr was the special prosecutor who investigated President Bill Clinton over his attempts to cover up a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the 1990s.
