Art Briles worries about the little people who made it all possible.
Approached by AL.com after the event, Briles would not answer questions about Baylor’s scandal, citing a non-disclosure agreement he signed with the university. Briles did reflect on his future, however, and said he wants to coach for 10 more years, and that he’s “not really concerned with what level.”
He said it is his goal to “be able to do what I’ve done all my life again, which is coach football and be around young people and help young people.”
“Right now, honestly, it’s just day to day,” Briles said.
Briles said he has been approached about opportunities within the coaching profession, but added “I think the best thing for me at this stage is to, my main focus has been to help those who were with me land on their feet.”
“it just didn’t affect me,” Briles said. “It affected numerous office personnel, strength staff and all the coaches. My main focus, honestly, this year has been to make sure they can continue doing what they love doing and provide for their families. So, that’s where I’ve been.
“I’ve kind of taken a backseat. I’m hoping that everything works out for them first.”
First they came for the enablers and he didn’t speak up… or something like that.
