Briles isn't going anywhere.
Art Briles has transformed Baylor from a struggling Big 12 program to a national title contender. And the 58-year-old coach has inked an extension with Baylor, bumping his salary to over $4 million a season.
The deal extends Briles’ contract with Baylor until 2023.
Considering Texas might be looking for a head coach in December, smart move on Baylor’s part to get this done and eliminate any doubt regarding Briles’ future in Waco.
