Baylor picks up Briles for an additional 10 years

Baylor University
Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 12:35pm

The Baylor Bears have reeled in their head football coach, Art Briles, for another 10 years.

Briles was given a contract extension, Wednesday, that will secure his position through the 2023 season when he will be 68-years-old.

This extension is on top of the one Briles was granted last season by the University Board of Regents which was an eight-year extension averaging $3.5 million. This adds three additional years to the deal.

Baylor has the leading offense in the nation averaging 61-points per game. The Bears have also seen major defensive improvements ranking seventh in the nation. They are also ranked number five in the nation overall with an undefeated record, according to the latest BCS rankings.

His short tenure in Waco has produced a program-record three straight bowl games, the school's first back-to-back bowl wins in 25 years, a Heisman trophy and has resulted in the current construction of a state-of-the-art $260 million on-campus, riverfront stadium. Interest and respect for Baylor's football program is at a decades-high level, according to Baylor University.

A native West Texan, Briles became Baylor's 25th head coach on Nov. 28, 2007, ushering in a new era and a new attitude to the storied Bears football program.

You can read the coaching positions Briles has held below:

  • 1979 Sundown HS • Assistant Coach
     
  • 1980-84 Sweetwater HS • Assistant Coach
     
  • 1984-86 Hamlin HS • Head Coach/Athletic Director
     
  • 1986-88 Georgetown HS • Head Coach/Athletic Director
     
  • 1988-99 Stephenville HS • Head Coach/Athletic Director
     
  • 2000-03 Texas Tech • Running Backs Coach
     
  • 2003-07 University of Houston • Head Coach
     
  • 2008-Present - Baylor University • Head Coach

With the addition of the beautiful, new stadium on the Brazos River, the Bears look to continue success with their leader returning, as well as opening up the 2014 season in high-tech, state-of-the-art fashion.
