Art Briles isn’t SEC-bound; former Baylor coach hired as assistant in CFL

Former Baylor coach Art Briles has secured his next coaching job, but it’s not a head coaching job. It’s not in the SEC. It’s not even in the United States.

Briles, who guided the Bears’ program for eight seasons before being fired amid a sexual assault scandal in May of 2016, has been hired as the assistant head coach for offense by the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

June Jones, the head coach of the Tiger-Cats, made the announcement on Monday. However, the release made no mention of Briles’ troubles in Waco, although it does include his back-to-back Big 12 championships and New Year’s Day bowl berths in 2013-14.

Briles’ name has been brought up numerous times for coaching vacancies ever since he was fired by Baylor.
