Brenda Tracy, the victim of an alleged gang rape involving two Oregon State football players in 1998, visited Baylor on Monday to share her story with the football and basketball teams.

Tracy was invited to speak to the teams by Jim Grobe, who was recently hired to serve as the Bears interim head coach.

Earlier this summer, Baylor football coach Art Briles was fired after an investigation found the school, athletic department and coaching staff had mishandled sexual assault claims against athletes. The report found Briles and his staff had failed to adequately discipline players who were accused of sexual assault. 

On Monday, Tracy tweeted out a picture with Grobe at the meeting, thanking him for inviting her to the school.

Tracy also spoke to the Nebraska football program in June. The Cornhuskers are coached by Mike Riley, who served in the same role at Oregon State when the alleged rape occurred. 

Tracy has met with NCAA officials and plans to speak at other schools in the future.
