Art Briles joined Clay on OutKick on Friday morning to discuss the new details that have emerged showing he shouldn’t have been fired.
“Oh, it’s been extremely eye-opening, Clay. You know, I certainly never had any idea that it would reach the level that it reached. Of course, everybody on the inside knew what was going on. We knew the kind of program we were running, and we knew that there were a lot of inefficiencies along the way that the Baylor University was running really, no Title IX, no policies, no procedures and all that. But, you know, on the other end of it, it kind of just ran out of control.
“I’m a real patient person. And I kind of knew eventually that there would be some facts that would get out and clear my name. And really, it’s not about me anymore. Really, it’s about my grandkids, you know. I want them just to be able to get on the internet, and if they did look up me to be able to see something that’s not negative. So, that’s kind of where it’s at. I mean, people that know me, know me. They know the type of person I am, and they know that that was all inflated.”
Briles also talked about coaching in Italy, the media, and the fact that the majority of allegations were not against football players.
