WACO, Texas (AP) - Baylor University regents say they have “full confidence” in a previous investigation into campus sexual and physical assault reports, and reject calls from a group of major donors for a third-party review.

Baylor regents said in a statement Monday they voted unanimously against further review of the investigation by the law firm Pepper Hamilton. That probe led to the firing of football coach Art Briles and the departures of President Ken Starr and athletic director Ian McCaw.

The Bears for Leadership Reform group led by several of Baylor’s top donors has complained the full investigation hasn’t been publicly released.

The regents’ statement did not mention a libel lawsuit filed last week by Briles against three board members and a senior Baylor official. Briles’ attorney, Ernest Cannon, said the board should release the entire investigation.
