Ex-Baylor coach Art Briles lands OC job with FCS program

Art Briles is back in college football. The former Baylor head coach was hired from the FCS Grambling State program, where he will serve as offensive coordinator under former NFL head coach Hue Jackson.

Grambling State confirmed the hiring to reporters just hours after dismissing reports of the hiring as “rumors”.

Confirmation from Grambling’s spokesperson to reporters is the closest thing to an official announcement. Instead of a traditional press release, Briles will sit down for an interview with a TV station.

This will be Briles’ first college football coaching job since being fired by Baylor over the program’s sexual assault scandal. Since then, Briles has coached high school football in Mount Vernon, Texas and an American football team in the Italian Soccer League in Florence, Italy.
