WACO, Texas - Baylor coach Guy Morriss has been fired a day after the Bears finished their 12th consecutive losing season with their 12th straight Big 12 loss.

Morriss was unable to produce a winning record in his five seasons, going 18-to-40 overall and 7-to-33 in conference games.

He had a year left on his contract. Athletic director Ian McCaw told Morriss of the decision today. The move had been anticipated for several weeks.

The leading candidate to replace Morriss is Baylor icon Mike Singletary, a linebacker for coach Grant Teaff and the Bears from 1977-80.

Singletary was selected to 10 straight Pro Bowls during his 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears and was elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.

The Bears (3-9, 0-8 Big 12) ended their season with a 45-to-14
home loss to Oklahoma State last night.

Morriss met with the players Sunday afternoon after he was
fired.
