Art Briles at Baylor gets a contract extension

Posted on: December 10, 2011 12:22 am


This is a nice extension, he turned around a pathetic Houston team bringing them to being a contender in Conference USA. Did a really good job at Texas Tech with the running backs and now he has done another wonderful job a Baylor.
Beating Oklahoma and Texas in the same year is something Baylor fans thought would never happen! I wish him continued success because if the Big Twelve was to remain a big time conference they need the former rollover teams to become relevant and win big time games and that is exactly what Baylor has been doing under Coach Briles.
 All of that topped with the fact that he is a pretty upstanding guy leads me to believe that Baylor will remain relevant for a few years. He is after all the guy who groomed Kevin Kolb at Houston and now Baylor finishes a season ranked in the top 15 for the first time since 1986, not too shabby since they were picked to finish sixth in the Big12 preseason poll. I know RG3 has a lot to do with their record but it still takes a coach and I myself think Art is a great one.
