Baylor’s Art Briles has been dismissed as football coach of the Bears.
This is all after reports surfaced that he covered up sexual assault involving his players.
The Bears suffered 12 consecutive losing seasons before Briles was hired in 2007.
After going 4-8 in each of his first two seasons, Baylor went 7-6 and played in its first bowl game in 16 years in 2010.
Since 2011, Briles has guided Baylor to a 50-15 record, winning 10 games or more in four of the last five seasons.
The Bears won at least a share of consecutive Big 12 titles in 2013 and ’14. The 2013 title was the school’s first outright conference championship since 1980.
