CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats Hire Art Briles as Coach Then Fire Him After Backlash

By Anthony Blake

Since his scandal at Baylor, Art Briles has been trying to get back into coaching on any level.

When the CFL came calling, Briles made the decision to accept an offer from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to get a foot back in the door.

And then the expected backlash came, forcing the CFL squad to do a 180 on its decision and renege on their offer to the former Baylor coach.

So it seems like Briles will have to wait a while if he is ever given another chance to get back into the coaching ranks.

And given the social clamor that can be raised in a relatively short amount of time these days, maybe he squandered his only opportunity to ever be involved in football.
