first XI since 2002, guid Antworten

WACO, Texas -- Billionaire businessman Drayton McLane, whose name adorns the Baylor University football stadium, said Thursday he wants to see fired football coach Art Briles honor restored and any evidence that led to his dismissal publicly released by the schools board of regents.McLane and a group of influential alumni and donors called Bears for Leadership Reform met across the Brazos River from McLane Stadium in Waco to demand more transparency from school regents, including the release of what was uncovered by an investigation into how the school handled sexual assaults.The group insisted its goal isnt to bring back Briles or focus on the football program, but to remove a cloak of secrecy surrounding board meetings, the investigation and its findings.Speaking on his own, McLane stopped short of calling for Briles return, but defended his integrity.The Baylor family and the public needs to know the truth, McLane said. Art and the other people involved in this need for the facts to come out. McLane also insisted hes been told nothing and been shown none of the evidence despite his position as a non-voting regent emeritus.Regents released some results from the investigation by the law firm Pepper Hamilton earlier this year that found the school for years mishandled reports of sexual assault, and that Briles football program acted as if it was above the rules.The probe led to Briles dismissal, the resignation of former athletic director Ian McCaw and the demotion of school president Ken Starr, who later resigned.Baylor is facing federal lawsuits from more than a dozen women, and a federal investigation by the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Education. The demands and sharp criticism of school leadership from influential donors and alumni is the strongest sign yet of the behind-the-scenes battles at Baylor.Briles assistant coaches, including son Kendal Briles, released a statement last week defending Briles. Fans lined up to buy black T-shirts with his initials before Baylors home game against TCU last week, and a similar banner also flew from one of stadiums luxury suites.The group on Thursday demanded Baylor regents hold open meetings, publish agendas and minutes, and discuss decisions publicly. And it wants Baylor to disclose what the university has spent on settlements and the pending lawsuits. It also wants a voice in selecting a new president.Baylor University has no place in scandalous, tabloid news, former regent Emily Tinsley said. Power struggles and secrecy can destroy any family.Houston attorney John Eddie Williams suggested some regents should be forced out. The board, however, is appointed by its own members.Theres some good people on that board, but there has been some bad decisions, Williams said. At some point, youve got to clean house.The group noted that Pepper Hamilton recommended reforms at the board level, including training on conflicts of interest and protocols for interaction with administrators and athletics. The group said it wants to know what the investigation found to prompt those recommendations.Baylor officials did not attend Thursdays meeting but regents Chairman Ron Murff released a lengthy statement in which he noted that emotions are running high.As we make the changes and reforms necessary at Baylor, we are determined to emerge from this experience stronger as a Christian institution, closer as a Baylor Family and united in our determination to always strive to do what is right, Murff said.Whether the group will try to force its influence for changes on the board by withholding money, Williams said that will be up to individual members to determine.

Peter Moores has been appointed as Nottinghamshires head coach, as the club aims to bounce back from a disappointing 2016 season.Moores, who was signed as a coaching consultant at Trent Bridge in July 2015, has been handed a three-year deal and takes over the day-to-day running of the first team from Mick Newell, who will continue to oversee the clubs wider fortunes as director of cricket.In addition to his two spells as England head coach, from 2007 to 2009 and again from 2014 to 2015, Moores took charge of the ECBs National Academy Director for a two-year period from April 2005 and is a two-times winner of the County Championship, with Sussex in 2003 and with Lancashire in 2011.To be offered the chance to become Head Coach of a Club like Notts, at a venue as special as Trent Bridge, is a terrific honour, said Moores.Working with cricketers one-to-one for the last year has been an ideal way to get me back in to county cricket, and it means I already know this group of players very well, which will give me a head start in some ways.The passion for being a head coach again is there and the club has the ambition to be competing for trophies across all three formats of the game, so its a fantastic opportunity.The appointment comes at a perilous moment for Nottinghamshire, who look doomed to rellegation from the top tier of the County Championship.dddddddddddd However, with Yorkshire on the look-out for a new director of cricket following confirmation of Jason Gillespies impending return to Australia, the club has moved quickly to retain the services of a man whose coaching abilities are held in high esteem on the county circuit. Newell, who has been in charge of Nottinghamshires first XI since 2002, guided the county to two Championship titles in 2005 and 2010, but has accepted the time is right to step back from clubs day-to-day running.Having a director of cricket and head coach working in partnership is something thats happening a lot in county cricket, and we feel the time is now right to introduce it at Notts, said Newell.Peter will run the professional squad his way, hell pick the team and well now work closely together in reviewing everything we do in relation to our playing and coaching, to ensure that were ready to bounce back strongly from whats been a disappointing season.Its also vitally important that we work on our player pathway, ensuring that were doing everything right to develop our professional and international players of the future.
