MOUNT VERNON, Texas (AP) — Art Briles was back at his roots Monday, coaching a high football team in Texas after a season in Italy and more than three years after the two-time Big 12 champion coach was fired by Baylor in the wake of a sexual assault scandal.
Briles is now coaching at Mount Vernon, a school just off Interstate 30 in East Texas between Dallas and the Arkansas line. He last coached high school 20 years ago, after winning four state championships in Stephenville, which is located on the other side of Dallas.
“I knew there was a yes out there somewhere because I found a lot of nos. But I was just thankful that the yes was here,” Briles said. “Honestly that’s why I went to Italy, because it was really the first opportunity that I had. It really didn’t matter to me where it was at. It’s just if there’s a ball that looks funny, I want to be on the field with it.”
While expressing his gratitude about being home in Texas, where all of his coaching career has been except for the time in Italy, the 63-year-old Briles didn’t discuss in depth his time at Baylor or departure from the school
