Baylor's Art Briles has made himself one of the hottest coaching candidates in the nation. Briles has turned around programs at Houston and Baylor and has made the Bears a higher profile team. While many speculate on his coaching future with a possible NFL job, the Texas Longhorns could be the tema that wins a possible Briles sweepstakes.
Briles signed a new 10-year contract with Baylor after it clinched its first ever Big 12 championship. A high-ranking Texas source said Briles' buyout is $4 million, but other reports suggest that it could be much higher than that figure, possibly $12 million, a price the Longhorns would more than likely be willing to pay.
With the high octane offense Briles orchestrates and the talent that annually come to Texas the Big 12 should be very afraid if Briles lands in Austin.
