I'm told Baylor is not expected to make an announcement regarding its interim coaching situation tonight. Defensive coordinator Phil Bennett is reportedly in talks to take on that role.

Power 5, Day 1

Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen, now one of just three female ADs at Power 5 schools, had a hectic first day on the job. After her introduction Wednesday, she monitored both her son's youth baseball game and the Huskies women's golf team, which won the NCAA championship. A loaded schedule

After he spoke at a jobs summit in Orlando, Fla., Miami coach Mark Richt was asked about Art Briles losing his job at Baylor. "I don't know why but I read a lot about the Penn State case," Richt said. "It caught my interest, and obviously it was very important to college football at the time. But this one in particular, I've not read one sentence other than a headline all along. You knew something was cooking; you didn't know what. I don't have any details of it, but I just know it's a sad time for a lot of people."

Three members of Baylor's 2016 top-20 recruiting class that signed in February said they have not been officially notified one way or the other by the school if they will be released from their letters-of-intent. The signees asked not to be identified at this point said they have already been reaching out to other schools to gauge their interest. Four Power 5 recruiters told me Thursday they expect most of the Bears' 2016 class to end up looking at other schools with Art Briles' firing.

Kellen Mond, the nation's No. 2 dual-threat quarterback and Baylor's top commitment, said he's going to have an in-depth conversation with his parents about his status. Even though Mond has been committed to Baylor since last June, he has been looking at other schools like Ohio State and Auburn. "I'm not sure yet how it will affect my recruitment," said Mond, who attends Bradenton (Florida) IMG Academy but is originally from San Antonio. "I definitely committed there because of Art Briles, but I won't know or do anything until I talk to my parents more in depth."

The details that have emerged surrounding Baylor sicken me, but I'm encouraged by the women who were brave enough to come forward and force not only Baylor to acknowledge what happened, but every campus in the country. The firing of Art Briles made the statement that these women and the safety of others are more important than winning -- something that should go without saying, but every single coach and athletic administrator needs to hear. Don't let this happen again.
