Why did Baylor's Title IX Coordinator Resign LESS THAN THREE WEEKS after latest accusation?!?

"Abstain from all appearance of evil."
1 Thessalonians 5:22

November 12, 2017:
Three Baylor football players have been suspended from the team because of allegations of sexual assault involving football players and female members of the university's equestrian team, a university official confirmed to ESPN.

At a Wednesday news conference, Bears coach Matt Rhule named four players who were suspended and would not be participating in spring practice. They included three redshirt freshmen, John Arthur, Justin Harris and Tre'von Lewis, as well as sophomore Eric Ogor.


It is unknown whether those three players also are among the four alleged suspects named in a police report regarding the alleged incident. According to a Baylor University Police Department incident report obtained by Outside the Lines, two female Baylor students told police that they were sexually assaulted at University Parks Apartments in Waco, Texas, during the early-morning hours of Nov. 12, only hours after Baylor lost to Texas Tech at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
November 17, 2017 (same article linked above):
The two women reported the incident to Baylor police on Nov. 17, according to the report.

The identities of the four alleged suspects, who were each identified as students, and six witnesses (three students and three faculty/staff members) were redacted. The alleged victims were identified by the pseudonyms "Jane Doe" and "Donna Smith."

In a March 2 letter to Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, an attorney representing the university wrote that the alleged victims initially reported the incident to Baylor equestrian coach Casie Maxwell, who made a report and forwarded it to the university's Title IX office, Clery Act specialist Shelley Deats and Baylor police chief Brad Wigtil. The letter was sent as part of the school's response to a public records act request by Outside the Lines.
December 7, 2017:
Baylor University Title IX Coordinator Kirstan Tucker has resigned from her position effective Jan. 2, the university announced Thursday.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation told KWTX earlier that Tucker has been out of the office for about a month.

Baylor declined comment in response to questions earlier this week about her job status. have another incident with the Football team on November 12th.  The Title IX office learns about it on November 17th.  Then the Title IX coordinator suddenly resigns on December 7th.

Also: What's up with her having "been out of the office for about a month" in the middle of all this?!?

Finally, keep in mind that the three week period in question includes Thanksgiving, so it seems unlikely any work was done then.

Alrighty then.

Bottom Line: When an institution has squandered every last bit of benefit of the doubt, how can you not assume the worst?!?
