The former Baylor Bears head football coach Art Briles is no longer accepting an assistant head coach for offense position with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Interim head coach June Jones, who was hired by the team last week, hired Briles on Monday morning.
In the hours after he was hired, there was outrage that the coach, who reportedly knew about rapes involving his college football team and hid them to have a top program, found another job.
“Art Briles will no longer be joining the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a coach,” the Canadian Football League said on Monday night. “We came to this decision this evening following a lengthy discussion between the league and the Hamilton organization. We wish Mr. Briles all the best in his future endeavors.”
He was fired by the school in May 2016 amid a sexual assault investigation. A law firm, through their investigation, found that there were “several mishandling numerous sexual assault allegations, including some against football players.” The Pepper Hamilton review also cost Kenneth Starr, then-Baylor University President, and Ian McCaw, then-Baylor Athletic Director, their jobs.
There were also lawsuits against the school, at least two Title IX lawsuits, and a lawsuit involving former student Jasmin Hernandez. She was the first of several women to file a lawsuit against the school. The school previously settled with three women, who did not sue the institution.
Baylor has not to follow through with recommendations through The Pepper Hamilton review. As a result, the Big 12 Conference is withholding money to the school.
Jones and Briles previously have a relationship, as they have reportedly known each other dating back to their Texas days.
