A former Baylor University football player has sued the school, claiming administrators mishandled a Title IX case against him, unfairly leaving him without living quarters, dining options and a scholarship. Jeremy Faulk, 25, filed the lawsuit against Baylor in Waco’s 414th State District Court on Wednesday. His lawyer, Richard Tate, said Faulk’s situation is “the most egregious example of just fundamental due process and fairness” he has ever seen. Faulk’s lack of Division 1 college football experience and his connection to a Baylor Title IX investigation have hindered his professional career, and he has been waived by two NFL teams during preseason camps, according to the suit. Faulk has previously made the allegations publicly but stopped short of suing. The case was brought back into the public eye in January 2017, when Lyn Wheeler Kinyon, a former Baylor financial aid staffer, claimed in a lawsuit that she was fired for reinstating Faulk’s scholarship in July 2016. Her lawsuit was settled last year. –  PHILLIP ERICKSEN, theeagle – Read More
