The University of Colorado reinstates football coach Gary Barnett, ending a suspension during the athletic department's recruiting scandal. Barnett was suspended for comments he made about women alleging sexually assault by Colorado football players or prospects. The university says that despite sweeping changes, no one in the athletics department will be fired. NPR's Tom Goldman reports.
