I wouldn't blame Baylor alumni if they're just a bit concerned, because time's a wasting.
It took Texas A&M only three days to get rid of coach Dennis Franchione and replace him with Mike Sherman. Meanwhile, today marks Day No. 9 since Baylor fired coach Guy Morriss.
Of course, the Bears' search for Morriss' replacement suffered a major hiccup when their top candidate, former Baylor All-American linebacker and current San Francisco 49er assistant head coach and defensive coach Mike Singletary, told them he would love to take the job if Baylor was serious about contending for national championships. Now we know why Singletary was ceremoniously scratched from Baylor's wish-list.
Today the Bears will interview University of Houston coach Art Briles. From where I'm sitting, give Briles the job!
Offer the man a five-year package worth $1.2 million a year plus incentives, and I promise you'll have a coach by the end of the day. Time's a wasting.
Briles led Houston to four bowls in his five years with the Cougars. The Bears would love to go bowling. If they happen to contend for some national championships along the way _ as Singletary suggested _ that's mere icing on the cake.
In the meantime, time's a wasting.
