Briles named CFL assistant coach

joining the team as an assistant head coach - Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Briiles was sacked in 2016 in wake to a sexual assault scandal involving Baylor football players. Following the scandal, Briles was unable to get another college coaching job.

Briles has denied covering up the sexual assaults. The CFL season is already underway, and the Tiger-Cats are off to an 0-8 start.

Jones was hired as an assistant for Hamilton on August 2.




Former Baylor coach Art Briles has secured his next coaching job, but it's not a head coaching job. Jones, a former Hawaii and SMU head coach, was named to the same position with the Tiger-Cats just last week.

Briles allegedly looked at the list of names and said, "those are some bad dudes ... why was she around those guys?" He led Baylor to Big 12 championships in 2013 and 2014 and coached the school's only Heisman victor, quarterback Robert Griffin III. The independent investigation revealed that some cases at Baylor were not reported to the proper authorities. However, the release made no mention of Briles' troubles in Waco, although it does include his back-to-back Big 12 championships and New Year's Day bowl berths in 2013-14. Former Commissioner Jeffrey Orridge announced the league would not allow another team to sign Cox despite him being found not guilty.

After being fired Briles sued the school, but later dropped the suit.
