WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor University President Ken Starr is proposing an independent investigation of the athletic department’s handling of the sexual assault complaint against defensive end Sam Ukwuachu.

Starr proposed the hiring of outside counsel after reviewing the results of the internal inquiry of sexual assault case, for which Ukwuachu was convicted and sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years of probation.

In a university statement Friday, Starr also proposes creating a new position at the athletic department to monitor the behavior of the university athletes and report directly to Starr, not the athletic department.

Starr says the officer would ensure Baylor athletes “maintain the high level of personal ethics and integrity” that Baylor and its followers demand.
