Since taking over, things have changed at Baylor under Art Briles
When Art Briles left Houston in 2007 to take over Baylor, everybody said it would be a mistake and career suicide, because nobody had been able to win successfully at Baylor since the 80′s. But Briles didn’t listen to the detractors and he took the Baylor job in 2008. While it wasn’t easy in the early go, he has since turned things around immensely and brought Baylor back into national prominence after a long hiatus, which some thought would never end. Under Art Briles, the Bears have had a run of four straight bowl games, winning back to back games for the first time in 25 years before their shocking loss at the hands of Central Florida in their first BCS game at the Fiesta Bowl.
