Former Baylor President Ken Starr is resigning his post as a law school professor, severing ties with the faith-based campus still reeling from a sexual assault scandal.

Starr lost his job as president and chancellor in May in a scandal involving the school's vaunted football team that also ousted coach Art Briles.

Baylor said in a statement Friday that Starr "will be leaving his faculty status and tenure" in a separation that was mutually agreed upon. It was his last Baylor post.

Starr is best known for zealously pursuing charges against former U.S. President Bill Clinton in a White House sex scandal.

He was removed as president of the nation's largest Baptist university after a scathing review found the school did little to respond to accusations of sexual assault involving football players.
