Rivals.com’s No. 8-ranked player in the recruiting Class of 2015 who ultimately chose his dad’s alma mater, Mississippi State, over Kansas University and Kentucky — on Monday announced plans to transfer after one season at the SEC school.
Scrambling to find a coach to lead its football program through a tumultuous time, Baylor hired a man known for turnarounds and integrity. Former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe will replace Art Briles, Baylor announced Monday. Grobe was named acting coach, with no mention of how long of a contract he will receive. Grobe, 64, has been out of coaching for two seasons.
McCaw was nominally Briles' boss, and had hired him from Houston back in 2008; any blame for a culture within the Baylor football program that Briles instituted or nurtured is probably fairly shared with the man who brought him to Waco to lead that football program.
Last year the SEC presidents banned transfers with “serious misconduct” issues. Now the definition of "serious misconduct" could expand.
