Is the Big12 the minor leagues for SEC coaches?

Lol if this is true

I guess Briles is giving Baylor the chance to match $$$ but that is unlikely to happen.
If true, this is a great hire. I am not sure they could have done better.
Where is this reported?
Huh? He's 66-58 and 1-4 in Bowl Games over 10 years.
I know they were turned down a lot, but there's gotta be someone better out there who wanted that job.
There is nothing on their site saying he has been hired?
I have to disagree. Briles has tons of TX connections and that is what AR needs. Plus, he always has dynamic offenses. If he can get a solid DC, he will turn out to be a good hire IMO.
I would have gotten Tubbs over him. Only two times he had double digit wins was when he had all-world QBs. He'll be out of the SEC in 2-3 years.
It is not like he is leaving Oklahoma or Texas for Arky. Baylor is probably the worst program in the Big 12 historically.
This would be a fabulous hire if true. He can help them open more of Texas. And for those bashing his record you have to remember where Baylor was when he got there. They were the Kentucky/Vandy of the Big 12. I think he'd be a good fit at Arky.
Baylor has been terrible for years before Briles came on board. If Briles leaves they will return to the bottom.
Just saw he signed an extension with Baylor. One thing you can say about Arkansas, they are making a lot of coaches wealthier this year.

Mike Gundy to Arkansas.
Wikipedia agrees: Mike Gundy (born August 12, 1967) is an American football coach and former player. He is currently the head football coach at University of Arkansas.
