The Baylor Bears could once again be in the middle of a scandal.
On Friday, it was reported that Baylor offensive coordinator Kendal Briles, the son of disgraced ex-head coach Art Briles, met with the NCAA over possible recruiting violations.
ESPN.com was first to share the news.
While there are few details, it was reported that Briles’ potential violations stem from making improper contact with a recruit. Baylor is trying to get “the level of the infractions reduced.”
Since learning of the news, Baylor released a statement on the situation.
Since being notified more than a year ago by the NCAA about potential violations involving two assistant football coaches, we have worked cooperatively with the NCAA and Thursday’s hearing was just the next step in the process to bring it to closure. We take all NCAA inquiries seriously and look forward to putting this behind us in the near future.
Briles was suspended for one game to start the year.
With all of the uncertainty surrounding the Baylor coaching staff moving into the future, we will have to wait and see whether Briles gets his third year as a coordinator with the Bears.
