Default Art Briles to Baylor: Official

790 reports Baylor has offered Briles a 10 year deal at 1.8 mil per year.
BCS Money rules college football.

Losing our coach to a dead end job like Baylor makes me hate the BCS and its endless supply of money even more.

No official word on acceptance.

But 10 years at 1.8 million is much more than UH could ever pay him. Baylor continues to be one of the worst football programs in the nation but still reaps the monetary benefits of being in a BCS conference.

It comes down to Art's loyalty to UH and $18 million dollars.

I wonder what the buyout will be when they fire him in 4 or 5 years.

Briles is a good coach potentially going to a terrible situation. He did turn UH around but C-USA is no Big 12.

Kim Helton, Dana Dimel, we don't need anyone named Fran. Even if its his last name.

That would double his salary. I think he could improve Baylor to a certain point.

Default Re: Art Briles reportedly headed to Baylor

Matt Jackson was saying earlier that he heard some grumblings from Alumns that are kinda pissed at Briles for putting out feelers ---- again.


On the other hand, how much can you blame Briles?! He has made UH football relevant again, but where can he really go with the program now!? Personally, I think he could do better than the Baylor job, but maybe not right now, unless Leach leaves Tech and he is offered that job.

Default Re: Art Briles reportedly headed to Baylor

Rumors have been floating around in Cougar circles that Briles would take the TT job if Leach were to leave. But Baylor! The Baylor Bears for Christ's sake! Where coaches go to end their careers.

Hopefully he stays at UH.

Ultimately that would be the best best for everyone, I beleive. He can continue to pad his resume, while continue to build interest (interest = recruiting and fan support) in UH football.

I wouldn't wish the Baylor job on anyone except Major Applewhite...



Maybe Nick Satan.
