Briles Shaped By His Parents' Deaths

+

This article is from 2008, just after he was hired on at Baylor. Interestingly enough, it's from the Lubbock paper. It only strengthens my belief that the connection between Art Briles and Baylor is deeper than we know. The path led to Baylor. Something about the situation, Briles said, seemed scripted. A Baptist university, a Texas school. A football program with a legacy - beating Tennessee in the 1956 Sugar Bowl and LSU in the 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl, winning the SWC in 1974 and 80 under Grant Teaff - but listless since. "That doesn't worry me," Briles said. "I've been on the bottom of the floor."
