The never-ending saga between Baylor University and former football coach Art Briles continues, this time extending across the street from its campus to the American Football Coaches Association. The AFCA recently had Briles listed as one of its guest speakers at its annual convention in Charlotte, N.C., where he was scheduled to give a talk on Tuesday. One day before Briles’ scheduled appearance, AFCA director Todd Berry issued a statement that the ex-Baylor coach would not be appearing at the event. According to multiple sources, this cancellation didn’t just happen because of social media nor was it Berry’s idea. Multiple sources confirmed that Baylor University athletic director Mack Rhoades and Baylor football coach Matt Rhule leaned on Berry and asked that Briles not be part of the event. “That is not true.

That is inaccurate,” Berry said in a phone interview on Thursday. Through a Baylor spokesman, both Rhoades and Rhule vehemently deny they asked Berry to cancel Briles’ appearance. -Mac Engel, Star-Telegram, Read More
