Briles: 'I have no desire to pursue other coaching positions'
Go ahead and take Art Briles' name off from the list of potential replacements at Texas, and every NFL opportunity, he's not going anywhere.
Earlier this morning, Briles sent out the following tweet that got things rolling.
Contrary to reports and rumors I am a Baylor Bear - 2013 Big 12 Champs— Coach Art Briles (@CoachArtBriles) January 3, 2014
The Baylor head coach followed that up by saying that he has "no desire to pursue other coaching positions" in his statement released by the university.
"I have no desire to pursue other coaching positions. As I've said many times, I am both humbled and honored to be the head coach at Baylor University, and believe we have something special going here. I look forward to leading the Bears onto the field next fall at McLane Stadium and defending our Big 12 championship that our players and coaches worked so hard to win this season."
"There is tremendous excitement for our program's future, and I look forward to many more great seasons at Baylor. There is tremendous commitment from our University leadership, athletic administration, coaches and student-athletes - it truly is a great time to be a Baylor Bear."
Although they did drop their BCS bowl game to Central Florida, the future at Baylor is extremely bright (it includes a new nutrition center and breathtaking new stadium), and it's hard to imagine it being any brighter than with Art Briles continuing to lead the way.
