Report: Art Briles ripping Baylor, accusing school of wrongful termination


An interesting report from the Associated Press surfaced on Thursday morning. According to the report, Baylor Bears head coach Art Briles, who is currently suspended with the intent to fire, is “ripping” his former employer.

The report adds that Briles is “accusing the school of wrongful termination and indicating he has no interest in settling a federal lawsuit filed against him and the university by a woman who was raped by a football player.”

Briles’ criticism came to light in a motion filed Thursday.

Briles is also asking a judge to assign him new attorneys and that he “does not wish to settle the case.”

This is a very interesting development in what could turn out to be a volatile case. Recently, reports surfaced that the Baylor board of regents was considering a one-year suspension that would allow Briles to return to the sideline in 2017.

While those reports have been refuted, it looks like Briles will not lose his job without a fight.
