A new chapter of Baylor football will begin August 28 when the Bears face Wake Forest at Floyd Casey Stadium. That will be the first game for new Head Coach Art Briles. He replaced Guy Morris who was let go on November 18, 2007 one day after the Bears lost to Oklahoma State wrapping up a 3 and 9 season.
Briles know the State of Texas well. He was a head coach at Hamlin High School, Georgetown High School and Stephenville High school before becoming the running backs coach at Texas Tech. He left Tech to become the Head Coach at the University of Houston.
Briles will try and get the Bears to a bowl game for the first time since 1994. He led the Cougars to four bowl games in five seasons. Baylor has not finished a season above .500 since 1995.
