Art Briles lands new coaching job with CFL team

Unhirable in America? Former Baylor coach Art Briles will join June Jones' staff in the CFL

"During his NCAA career, which began with a three-year stop as running backs coach at Texas Tech (2000-02), Briles has recruited/mentored numerous players that have graduated to the National Football League", the Tiger-Cats' statement continued.

Briles was in the news last week when Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin and Briles' son, FAU offensive coordinator Kendall Briles, said Art Briles was a sounding board for ideas for the coaches.

Briles, 61, spent 2008 through 2015 as the coach at Baylor before being fired amid a sexual assault scandal in May of 2016.

Former Baylor coach Art Briles has secured his next coaching job, but it's not a head coaching job.

The Tiger-Cats started the season 0-8, leading to head coach Kent Austin resigning. Jones, a former Hawaii and SMU head coach, was named to the same position with the Tiger-Cats just last week.

Jones was hired as an assistant for Hamilton on August 2. Briles and Jones will be responsible for improving the CFL's worst offense. He was suspended with intent to terminate after Baylor received the findings from the Pepper Hamilton investigation into the school's sexual assault scandal.

While at Baylor, Briles won back-to-back Big 12 championships in 2013 and 2014.

Briles' former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III is on Hamilton's negotiation list.
