Baylor’s football program announced the following media policy for the 2016 season today: interim head coach Jim Grobe will be the only member of the Bears’ staff to do interviews.
No Baylor assistant will be made available to the media this fall.
The Bears’ program is currently being investigated for a sexual assault scandal that led to head coach Art Briles to be fired. Some of Baylor’s assistants believed to be involved in the scandal are still on staff.
#Baylor announces that Jim Grobe will be the only coach to conduct interviews this season. Assistant coaches will not be made available.

This, unfortunately, isn’t that surprising.
Baylor opens its 2016 season Friday, Sept. 2 against Northwestern State.
