WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor University has named a new Title IX coordinator, effective immediately. 

Baylor Interim President David Garland announced the appointment of Kristan Tucker as the new Title IX Coordinator, effective immediately. 

Tucker served the Senior Deputy Title IX Coordinator in the university's Title IX office. 

“Kristan Tucker is a capable and experienced Title IX professional, and I have full confidence in her ability to lead our Title IX Office,” said Garland in a statement. “Kristan has been an integral part of our efforts to build a strong and responsive Title IX Office, and she serves, alongside her staff members, on implementation teams focused on the recommendations from Pepper Hamilton."

Baylor University's former Title IX Coordinator Patty Crawford resigned Monday night, according to the university. 

Crawford was "disappointed in her role in implementing the recommendations that resulted from the Pepper Hamilton investigation," a press release stated.

In a statement released Monday evening, Baylor said:

"The University is grateful for Patty’s leadership in establishing fair and equitable Title IX processes that are also supportive of the needs of survivors. We will always seek to continuously improve and are confident that the very capable Title IX staff will continue the important work of educating, supporting and responding to the needs of those impacted by interpersonal violence.”

Patty Crawford became the Title IX Coordinator at Baylor in November 2014. Crawford spoke to CBSnews about her resignation. 

Baylor released a statement in response: 

Baylor University was surprised by the action taken by Patty Crawford given her public comments in August about the strong support she felt from across the University. Her demands in advance of mediation for one million dollars and book and movie rights were troubling.

The university also said in the statement that they were proud of the resources invested in building "a strong Title IX office and of the collaborative work the university has been doing and will condition to do in the implementation of the Pepper Hamilton recommendations."
