Former Baylor coach Art Briles told KCEN’s Jessica Morrey he will be a head coach again by 2017, either in college or the NFL.
Briles was suspended with the “intent to terminate” in May amid controversy over Baylor’s handling of rape allegations involving football players. Briles officially parted ways with the school in June, receiving a settlement for his dismissal.
Briles was successful on the field with the Bears, leading the program to a 65–37 record in eight seasons, including two conference championships and six bowl game appearances.
Baylor hired Jim Grobe as its interim coach to replace Briles.
