Matt Lubick has his fourth job in three months, as he heads to Washington. Colt Barber of SicEm365 broke that news and had this information as well:
Baylor confirms that former Atlanta Falcon's QB coach Glenn Thomas has been promoted to Baylor's co-OC position, joining Jeff Nixon— Colt Barber (@Colt_Barber) February 22, 2017
Matt Mosley of Texas Montly and SicEm365 reported this:
I'm told Baylor Co-OC Matt Lubick felt squeezed out with the arrival of ex-Temple OC Glenn Thomas. I think Rhule feels good about his staff.— Matt Mosley (@mattmosley) February 22, 2017
BU co-OC Jeff Nixon was likely set to call plays anyway. Now you have two former NFL assts running the offense. Thomas was ATL QBs coach.— Matt Mosley (@mattmosley) February 22, 2017
Tim Watkins of Bears Illustrated broke down Baylor’s quarterbacks:
The goal for the 2017 Bears will probably be to redshirt Brewer, with the loser of the Solomon/Smith battle being the primary backup. Smith will then be in the drivers seat for the 2018 spot along with Brewer and possibly 1-2 more recruits or additions to that roster. For 2017 though, these are the three. The only hope for Baylor fans is that the 2-year trend of massive destruction to the QB depth chart does not continue.
Tony Adame of 247 discussed Baylor’s recent offers:
Baylor sent out a trio of offers in the last 24 hours to three recruits who all have one very distinct thing in common — the ability to play multiple positions on the next level.
Manvel (Texas) wide receiver/athlete Kam Scott, Boling (Texas) defensive end/quarterback Vernon Jackson and Rome (Ga.) defensive end Jamarcus Chatman all announced their offers on Twitter — Scott and Jackson on Tuesday night and Chatman on Wednesday.
JaMarcus Chatman, a defensive end from Georgia, picked up a Baylor offer:

Jerry Palm, CBS’ Bracketologist, says Baylor has the 4th most impressive resume in the country:
Baylor has eight RPI top-50 wins, tied for the most of any team, and all of those wins have come over teams in the current bracket. Their inability to beat Kansas is frustrating, but if the Bears end up not being a No. 1 seed, it will be more because of the losses at home to Kansas State and at Texas Tech than the ones to Kansas. The line between Baylor and UNC is razor thin.
The nation’s top senior point guard still plans to visit Baylor. From the Arizona Star Daily:
Trevon Duval, a 6-foot-3-inch guard from Delaware now playing for Florida’s IMG Academy, said on Twitter that he will visit Arizona this weekend. Duval is scheduled to arrive in time to spend Friday on campus and Saturday at the UA-UCLA game.
Duval has already taken recruiting visits to Duke and Kansas, while Baylor and Seton Hall are also scheduled.
I’ll have a preview of the Iowa State-Baylor game up early this morning. Sic ‘Em!
