Head Football Coach at Baylor University
Art Briles Biography
Art Briles was born December 3, 1955 and is a football coach, who is currently the head coach at Baylor University. Formerly, he was the head coach at the University of Houston.
Briles left Stephenville after the 1999 season to join Mike Leach's staff at Texas Tech. While serving as running backs coach, Briles improved Texas Tech's rushing average every year from 66.4 yards a game in his first year to 99.6 yards a game in 2002. He also coached all-conference backs and later NFL players Ricky Antwan Williams, Shaud Williams, and Taurean Henderson.
In 2003, Briles was hired as head coach at the University of Houston, where he took over a program that had an 8-26 record under the previous coach, Dana Dimel. The Cougars went 0-11 just two years before Briles's arrival. In his first season, Briles led the Cougars to a 7-5 record, including a 48-54 triple overtime loss to Hawaiʻi, in the Sheraton Hawaiʻi Bowl.
After a 3-8 season in 2004, Briles guided the Cougars to a 6-6 season and another bowl game in 2005. In 2006, he led the Cougars to a 10-4 record and the Conference USA Championship that was played on December 1, 2006. The Cougars won the game 34-20 and it was the school's second C-USA Championship (the first came in 1996, in the school's inaugural season in the C-USA).
In 2007, the Cougars finished second in the Conference USA West Division to Todd Graham's Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Houston was invited to the Texas Bowl, which was played December 28, 2007 at Reliant Stadium. It was Houston's fourth bowl appearance in five years. However, Briles did not coach the game for the Cougars.
Briles interviewed for the Baylor head coach position on November 27, 2007, and was hired the next day. At Baylor, Briles took over a program that has not had a winning season since 1995 and has gone 35-101 since joining the Big 12 Conference.
In his first season at Baylor, Briles led the Bears to a 4-8 record, 2-6 in Big 12 play. The season featured the emergence of freshman quarterback Robert Griffin (who had originally committed to play for Briles at Houston). The Bears finished 4-3 at home and played Missouri, Connecticut, Nebraska and Texas Tech close. They also easily defeated "Battle of the Brazos" rival Texas A&M for only the second time since 1985, the other win coming by one point in overtime.
