Art Briles joins CFL's Tiger-Cats as assistant head coach

College Football: Former Baylor HC Art Briles hired by CFL team

"During his NCAA career, which began with a three-year stop as running backs coach at Texas Tech (2000-02), Briles has recruited/mentored numerous players that have graduated to the National Football League", the Tiger-Cats' statement continued. He remains a radioactive coaching prospect when it comes to another FBS job, though this new gig could certainly help him start to rebuild his shattered reputation.

Art Briles, who coached the Baylor football team during a period in which his players are alleged to have committed up to 52 rapes, has found himself a new job.

Briles was 99-65 in 13 seasons as head coach at Baylor and Houston.

The former Baylor head coach, who was sacked in 2015 in the wake of a major sexual assault scandal within the Bears' program, has landed an assistant gig in the Canadian Football League.

During Briles' time at Baylor, multiple members of the team were accused of violent crimes, including sexual assaults. He previously served as the head coach at Hawaii and SMU.

Jones was hired as an assistant for Hamilton on August 2. The independent investigation revealed that some cases at Baylor were not reported to the proper authorities.

Briles allegedly looked at the list of names and said, "those are some bad dudes ... why was she around those guys?"

The team announced the hiring Monday.
