Art Briles’ possible return angers alleged victim’s family


On Tuesday, reports surfaced that the Baylor board of regents was re-considering their decision regarding Art Briles. Rather than firing the head coach, there was a belief that some regents preferred a one-year suspension that would allow Briles to return in 2017.

Obviously, people with any common decency and logic realized how absurd such a decision that would be, and the report was met with disbelief. For others, including the family of an alleged victim of sexual assault from one of Briles’ players, the news was understandably met with anger.

“I’m surprised they haven’t (shot it down) because it’s a place in crisis mode, and they’re trying to recover their image,” one family member said, via FOX Sports. “But then again, I’m not really that surprised because obviously this type of thing has been their method of action all along. We were led to believe one thing that was happening, when it wasn’t. It’s actually very similar to how they handled things before (in their case).

“This is a very dirty place that we’ve seen has been very conniving and low down. It’s hard to fathom because not only is this a university, but it’s a Christian university.”

Hopefully, common sense prevails and the board of regents does not decide to bring back Briles.

In the meantime, former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe will be serving as the Bears interim head coach.
