IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 board of directors has unanimously endorsed an independent report that says Baylor has implemented recommendations for reforming its Title IX process after a campus sexual assault scandal more than two years ago.

With the board’s action Tuesday, the Big 12 will no longer withhold a portion of Baylor’s share of conference revenue. Nearly $14.3 million has been withheld over the past two years, though that money won’t go directly back to the school.

The Big 12 last year started withholding 25 percent of revenue payments to Baylor pending verification of the 105 changes recommended by Pepper Hamilton, the firm that handled the initial investigation in 2016. The scandal led to the departures of school president Ken Starr, athletic director Ian McCaw and two-time Big 12 champion football coach Art Briles.

Baylor is still waiting for the outcome of an NCAA investigation into the scandal.
