Art Briles staying at Baylor

Posted · Add Comment

Baylor coach Art Briles announced that he's remaining at the Big 12 school after winning a championship this past season.

“I have no desire to pursue other coaching positions,” Briles said in a statement. “As I've said many times, I am both humbled and honored to be the head coach at Baylor University and believe we have something special going here.

“I look forward to leading the Bears onto the field next fall at McLane Stadium and defending our Big 12 championship that our players and coaches worked so hard to win this season.”

Briles was a candidate for the Texas vacancy and linked in speculation to the Washington Redskins because of his ties to former Baylor star Robert Griffin III.

Briles is 44-32 at Baylor.

“There is tremendous excitement for our program's future, and I look forward to many more great seasons at Baylor,” Briles said. “There is tremendous commitment from our university leadership, athletic administration, coaches and student-athletes — it truly is a great time to be a Baylor Bear.”
