Baylor said Tuesday its board of regents continues to review the results of an investigation into the school’s response to sexual violence allegations — many involving football players — but made no announcements about any action being taken by the board.

The school did say it expects to make an announcement by June 3.

The statement came hours after an unconfirmed report circulated that the school had dismissed university president Kenneth Starr.

“The Baylor Board of Regents continues its work to review the findings of the Pepper Hamilton investigation and we anticipate further communication will come after the Board completes its deliberations,” the statement read. “We will not respond to rumors, speculation or reports based on unnamed sources, but when official news is available, the University will provide it. We expect an announcement by June 3.”

ESPN’s Outside the Lines recently obtained documents that detail allegations involving several football players. This came after earlier OTL reports that included examples in which school officials failed to investigate or adequately investigate allegations of sexual violence. In many of the cases, officials did not provide support to those who reported the assaults, in apparent violation of Title IX federal law.

In the fall of 2015, Baylor hired Philadelphia law firm Pepper Hamilton to review its past treatment of sexual assault claims. The board was given an update on the findings in mid-May, and continues to review the report, according to the statement.
