Ex-BU official claims retaliation for reinstating player’s scholarship


Lynn Wheeler Kinyon, a former assistant vice president for student financial aid at Baylor, who claims she was fired in retaliation for reinstating the scholarship of a junior college transfer who was kicked off the school’s football team the height of the sexual assault scandal has filed a lawsuit.

Jeremy Faulk is not named as the former player in the lawsuit, but KWTX has learned through a months-long investigation of his case that he is the student whose scholarship Kinyon reinstated.

Kinyon was fired in November, four months after leading a committee that decided to overrule Baylor’s decision in June 2016 to strip Faulk of his scholarship.
