FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Former Baylor football coach Art Briles is going to Italy to try to revive his career.
Briles was fired by Baylor in 2016 amid a sexual assault scandal at the Baptist school and hasn't coached since. He told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he has been hired to coach an American football team, Guelfi Firenze, in Florence, Italy. Briles said he will join the team in October.
Baylor fired Briles after a school investigation found his football program operated as if it was "above the rules" and that staff interfered with assault investigations and witnesses.
