An interesting face was helping the Cleveland Browns at practice today.
Former Baylor head coach Art Briles was a guest coach today, according to the The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III, wide receiver Corey Coleman and offensive lineman Spencer Drango all played for Briles at Baylor. He was invited by head coach Hue Jackson. He performed a similar role in the summer during training camp.
“Hey, I’ll learn from anybody if they can help us,” Jackson said to Cabot in August. “Obviously, he’s a very accomplished college coach and has done outstanding. I wish him well. He’s done just outstanding at Baylor, but at the same time, I think he was here to see his guys and get an opportunity to see us, our organization and what we do, but more so see his football players.”
Briles not only had Baylor playing at consistently the highest level in the history of the program, but also is one of the best high school football coaches the state of Texas has ever seen.
However, he was fired from Baylor during the last offseason. Baylor went under investigation for not properly handling sexual assault complaints against players. It was also uncovered that he took in a transfer from Boise State that had been convicted of sexual assault.
