Heather Dinich @CFBHeather

I applaud the women who were brave enough to come forward at Baylor and hope this case inspires others and forces every program to take note

Jake Trotter @Jake_Trotter

Baylor notes that “additional members of the administration and athletics program have been dismissed,” but does not identify them.

Joe Schad @schadjoe

Baylor will incorporate changes that are necessary, but also remind me of how hard it was to find a special coach in wake of PSU mess.

Herbstreit surprised by Briles' firing

Kirk Herbstreit says Baylor's firing of football coach Art Briles is a "major step, not just for Baylor, but for intercollegiate athletics about taking a stand."


Travis Haney @TravHaneyESPN

I just don't see how you can start lobbing out candidates to replace Briles when you haven't seen report. Feels insensitive to victims, too.

Will Briles' firing affect college sports culture?

Jane McManus calls Baylor's decision to fire football coach Art Briles a "pretty stunning" move.


Travis Haney @TravHaneyESPN

I'm also curious what Briles will say when he talks publicly. He can come off stubborn, headstrong - but I've seen him open up before.

Baylor QB commit Kellen Mond was already looking around quite a bit before Bears' coach Art Briles was dismissed Thursday. A Big Ten recruiter just told me he expects Mond, the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback, to decommit today or within a few days because of the news. Mond is also heavily considering Ohio State, Auburn, Florida and others.
