Briles d’artthe former Baylor soccer coach who was fired in 2016 after a university investigation found he and other coaches botched sexual assault charges against soccer players, was hired on Thursday as a as Grambling State University’s offensive coordinator, school officials said.

Briles had not coached college football since his ousting from Baylor, but he was the head football coach at Mount Vernon High School in Texas before resigning in 2020. Briles, 66, also coached football at Florence, in Italy, in 2018.

Briles’ hiring at Grambling State in Louisiana, one of the most popular historically black colleges in the United States, immediately raised questions about the culture of the program under Hue Jackson, the former head coach of the Cleveland Browns who was hired to lead the college’s football program in December.

Brian Howard, an athletic department spokesman, said he would not officially announce Briles’ hiring or discuss his reasons for returning to college football. Howard added that Briles was interviewed by a reporter from a local tv channel and discussed some of the controversies surrounding his time at Baylor. The segment featuring Briles was scheduled to air Thursday night.

The sexual assault scandal dogged Baylor for much of the 2010s, with its football program earning the college millions of dollars. A damning report from an outside law firm included numerous allegations of sexual assault against football players – accusations that were often intentionally not reported to the relevant authorities. The investigation found that Baylor had instituted “a cultural perception that football was above the rules”.

In response, university president Kenneth Starr was demoted to chancellor and finally left. Athletic director Ian McCaw, who now holds the same position at Liberty University, has resigned. And Briles was fired.

The university has reached settlements with several women who have reported instances of harassment or assault and filed complaints under Title IX, the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in universities.

Last year, however, the NCAA ruled that Baylor did not violate its rules when it failed to report the sexual assault allegations, despite even the university’s own acknowledgment of the repeated errors surrounding the scandals. A panel wrote that the allegations against members of Baylor’s football program, some of which led to criminal cases and convictions, did not just affect student-athletes, but rather took place in a “culture of violence campus-wide sex. Because the allegations were not limited to student-athletes alone, the committee concluded that it could not punish the university for a violation of NCAA rules.

After the shooting, Briles apologized and admitted that he “made mistakes.” He said in hindsight he would have handled things differently at Baylor, where he was 65-37 and led a once insignificant program to two Big 12 championships.

In 2017, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League hired Briles as an assistant coach, but less than 24 hours later, after receiving widespread public backlash, they denied and announced that he would not be joining the team.
