Briles named CFL assistant coach

Briles named CFL assistant coach

Briles will serve on the staff of former college and National Football League coach June Jones.

Briles was sacked by Baylor a year ago after investigations by the university and reporters uncovered a culture of sexual violence among players, and attempts by the coaching staff and local police to cover it up. While infamously involved in a program-wide sexual assault scandal during his time at Baylor, Briles was ultimately fired by the Bears back in May 2016. Following the scandal, Briles was unable to get another college coaching job. The move comes days after Hamilton promoted former Hawaii and SMU coach June Jones to head following a 0-8 start.

Briles coached at Baylor from 2008-2015.

Art Briles is back coaching football.




Two of Briles' former assistants were hired earlier this year at Southeastern University, a non-NCAA institution based in Lakeland, Fla. The independent investigation revealed that some cases at Baylor were not reported to the proper authorities.

After being fired Briles sued the school, but later dropped the suit.

Briles allegedly looked at the list of names and said, "those are some bad dudes ... why was she around those guys?" If Griffin indicates he wants to sign with a CFL team, Hamilton has exclusive rights to sign the former Heisman Trophy victor.
