Baylor officials deny defaming ex-coach Briles amid scandal

WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor University officials have responded to a defamation lawsuit filed by ex-football coach Art Briles, saying they were truthful in comments criticizing Briles' handling of sexual assault allegations against players.

Three Baylor regents and an administrator said in a court filing last week in Llano County that Briles is a public figure and bears the responsibility of proving any falsehood.

The four men, including Chief Operating Officer Reagan Ramsower and regent Chairman Ronald Murff, are requesting a jury trial.
