Baylor to hire Jim Grobe as interim football coach


Baylor will name Jim Grobe as its interim football coach, according to’s Gil Brandt.

Grobe will replace Art Briles, who four days earlier was suspended by the school indefinitely with the intent of firing him. Baylor’s board of regents made the decision in wake of the findings from the Pepper Hamilton report on how Briles’ coaching staff handled allegations of sexual assault by football players.

Grobe has 19 years of coaching experience in college football, with previous stops at Ohio and Wake Forest. He resigned in 2013 following a 4-8 season at Wake, and has not had a job at the collegiate level since. He’s compiled a 110-115-1 career record, and led the Demon Deacons to an Orange Bowl appearance in 2006.

Brandt also reported that Phil Bennett will remain the defensive coordinator for the Bears

Baylor has not announced the hire yet.
