Art Briles lands new coaching job with CFL team

College Football: Former Baylor HC Art Briles hired by CFL team

Briles is headed to the Canadian Football League to join the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Two weeks after his lawyer said Art Briles was planning a return, the former Baylor coach has resurfaced in football - north of the border.

Briles, 61, was sacked in May of a year ago at the same time Baylor President Ken Starr was demoted and Athletic Director Ian McCaw was put on probation. He was promoted to head coach on Saturday after former head coach Kent Austin resigned following an 0-8 start this season.

During his eight-year tenure at Baylor, Briles turned a floundering program into a perennial postseason contender.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Monday they have hired Briles to serve as their assistant head coach for offense.

Tottering at 10/3, the hosts were in a real scare of getting embarrassed, but their two experienced batsmen bailed them out. Bangladesh , formerly a laughing stock of the cricketing world have made inroads over the last 12 months.

Jones was hired as an assistant for Hamilton on August 2. Briles and Jones will be responsible for improving the CFL's worst offense.

According to an independent outside report, Baylor administrators failed to follow proper procedures when dealing with sexual assault cases, actively discouraged some complainants from reporting, and in one case retaliated against a student who did report an assault. Briles first game with Hamilton will be on Labor Day when the Tiger-Cats host their biggest regular season game against their biggest rival the Toronto Argonauts.

Baylor finished 7-6 past year under interim head coach Jim Grobe.

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