Former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe,64, has been hired as interim head coach at Baylor. He is to replace Art Briles.
Grobe, a native of Huntington, West Virginia, coached at Ohio from 1995 to 2000 and Wake Forest from 2001 to 2013. He had a 77-82 record in 13 seasons with the Demon Deacons and his teams played in five bowl games. In 2006, Grobe guided Wake Forest to an 11-3 record and an unlikely ACC championship.
Grobe left as Wake Forest’s coach after a 4-8 finish in 2013. Which was his last coaching job.
