  • Baylor coach Art Briles walks the field before the NCAA college football team's game against Lamar in Waco Texas. Briles the former Baylor football coach fired three years ago after an investigation found

Former Baylor head coach Art Briles was hired at Mount Vernon High School in Mount Vernon, Texas, on Friday. "I am excited to be coaching at Mount Vernon this fall".

Art Briles has a new home coaching football, and it's back in the state where it all started.

He was sacked on May 26, 2016 following a school investigation by into the football program conducted by the Pepper Hamilton law firm. He is passionate about investing in the lives of young people and helping them to succeed both on the field and in life.

Briles will return from overseas to take over the high school program.

The longtime head coach was ousted as Baylor's head coach as a result of the school's sexual assault scandal.

Before jumping to the collegiate level, Briles spent two decades coaching high school football in Texas - including a 10-year stint at Stephensville High School.

Mount Vernon ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jason McCullough feels comfortable with the work he's done looking into Briles' past. The NCAA has alleged a lack of institutional control by the school and that Briles failed to promote compliance. "After a thorough due diligence process and several earnest conversations, we believe our students will benefit greatly from his skills and experience", McCullough said in making the announcement.

Legendary football coach Grant Teaff, former Executive Director of the American Football Coaches Association and supervisor of the association's Ethics Committee, offered an unqualified positive recommendation for Briles.

He was hired by Hamilton in the Canadian Football League in 2017, but after public backlash, the Tiger-Cats quickly rescinded the move. Briles interviewed for the offensive coordinator position at Southern Miss earlier this year, though did not receive the job. Briles was head coach at the University of Houston from 2003-2007, going 34-28 before taking over at Baylor.

At Baylor, Briles ended a 15-year bowl drought, developed Robert Griffin III in to the school's first Heisman Trophy victor and began beating schools like Texas and Oklahoma.

Mount Vernon has never appeared in a state championship game, according to Texas Football magazine.

"I'm extremely tickled myself", Briles said. "We're very grateful and humbled to come there and do whatever we can do to help those young people in Mount Vernon".
