Former Baylor Coach Art Briles Lands CFL Gig

Former Baylor Coach Art Briles Lands CFL Gig

Art Briles, who coached the Baylor football team during a period in which his players are alleged to have committed up to 52 rapes, has found himself a new job.

The former Bears coach has been out of work since Baylor dismissed him in May 2016.

Briles was sacked by Baylor past year after investigations by the university and reporters uncovered a culture of sexual violence among players, and attempts by the coaching staff and local police to cover it up. In his introductory press conference, Jones mentioned that he would like to hire another offensive coach.

Briles was 99-65 in 13 seasons as head coach at Baylor and Houston. Former Hawaii head coach June Jones took over for Austin as head coach.

Yingluck's flight provides Thai junta welcome way out
Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said the government "should not comment" on Yingluck's case and her whereabouts. He said a warrant would be issued for her arrest, and announced the hearing would be postponed until September 27.


It will be interesting to see if Briles ever returns to the college game. Baylor won back to back Big 12 Championships (2013-2014) marking only the second achievement in league history and first since the University of Oklahoma. ESPN has reported that Briles and his assistants "actively intervened" in school disciplinary measures against football players accused of a variety of offenses.

The Tiger-Cats rank last in the CFL with an 0-8 record.

It is with profound disappointment that we heard the news of the hiring of Art Briles.
