Art Briles Moves On

So much for the Houston Cougar Watch! Art Briles, Head coach of the Cougars, has been hired by Baylor to become the next head coach. Briles had four years left on his contract and accepted a bowl bid to the Texan Bowl on the 28th of December. Briles will not coach the team in the bowl game. Briles led Houston to four bowls in his five seasons. "Life is full of decisions. Sometimes, you have to look at things from a professional, personal standpoint," Briles said. "Professionally, (Houston) ... is great university with a situation I'm proud to be a part of. Personally, the move allows a person of my nature a little more security. When you're getting up in my age, that's an important factor in life." Baylor completed their 12th straight losing season and their 12th consecutive Big 12 loss. Briles will make 1.8 million dollars a year for the next 7 years.
