The Baylor Bears have made some adjustments for the upcoming season after a whirlwind of negative attention this offseason.
On Tuesday, it was announced that interim head coach Jim Grobe will be the only Bears coach available to the media, whether at practice or after games, during the 2016 season. There is no word on if players will be allowed to interview with the press this year.

This is probably the best way for Baylor to keep from getting themselves in trouble, especially since Grobe has only been with the team since early June. He isn’t as closely linked to the situation as some of the other coaches, like Kendal Briles, former head coach Art Briles’ son.
It will be interesting to see some of the ways reporters try to get Grobe to talk about the situation going into the season.
