Late Friday afternoon, Baylor Athletics released a statement from football head coach Art Briles (pictured with Robert Griffin III).  In the statement, Briles reaffirmed his commitment to Baylor football.

“I have no desire to pursue other coaching positions,” Baylor coach Art Briles said. “As I’ve said many times, I am both humbled and honored to be the head coach at Baylor University, and believe we have something special going here. I look forward to leading the Bears onto the field next fall at McLane Stadium and defending our Big 12 championship that our players and coaches worked so hard to win this season.

“There is tremendous excitement for our program’s future, and I look forward to many more great seasons at Baylor,” he added. “There is tremendous commitment from our University leadership, athletic administration, coaches and student-athletes – it truly is a great time to be a Baylor Bear.”

Briles name has surfaced over the past few weeks as NFL teams, and the University of Texas, search for new head coaches.

Briles’ Baylor Bears finished the 2013 campaign with an 11-2 record, and the Big 12 Championship, which is the best season in Baylor history.
