Ex-Baylor head coach Art Briles drops libel lawsuit against school officials


Former Baylor football coach Art Briles has dropped the defamation lawsuit filed against four university officials he accused of making false statements against him, according to attorneys in the case.

"He was a non-factor as far as anybody investigating that was concerned", Herman said of Horny, later adding that his longtime friend had "no knowledge of the unfortunate circumstances at Baylor".

For the second time in a month, Texas football coach Tom Herman publicly defended the hiring of former Baylor staffer Casey Horny.

"Art wants some peace in his life for him and his family, and to put as much distance between him and his family and Baylor as he can", the lawyer told KWTX, "and I wholeheartedly agree with him".

Seeking a jury trial, Shillinglaw is filing for damages suffered due to the incident.

Baylor fired Briles last May after Pepper Hamilton, a third-party law firm, published a summary of the investigation into the school's handling of at least 19 alleged sexual assault investigations involving Baylor football players. During a coaching search last December, the University of Houston took the unusual step of announcing Briles, who had been head coach there before moving to Baylor, would not be interviewed.
