• ‘The Other Side of Art Briles’ offers a look into the personal side of Baylor’s football coach

    Today, Baylor head football coach Art Briles will announce his program’s 2013 signing class, the 20 or so young men who will join the team this fall. The Bears’ group of incoming players is expected to rank among the top 25 in the nation, further evidence of the program’s continuing rise in prominence.

    But the person who stands at that podium today isn’t just a football coach; he’s a man, a person, someone who has known both tragedy (the loss of his parents while still in college) and joy (the grandchildren who have a uniquely cute nickname for their grandpa). Waco’s KWTX-TV ran this excellent package over the weekend that gives a good look at the man behind the clipboard.
