Will Art Briles Ever Coach Again?

After Thursday's new court filing, many are wondering whether former Baylor head coach Art Briles will ever coach at the collegiate level again.

Thursday, in a court filing for a lawsuit involving former Baylor assistant AD Colin Shillinglaw, a number of Briles' alleged text messages sent between 2011 and 2015 regarding player discipline (or lack thereof) were exposed. In short, Briles is alleged to have attempted to sweep a great deal of his players' wrongdoings under the rug.

Many in the industry are wondering if Briles, who clearly wants to coach again, will ever be given the opportunity to do so. Briles was fired last May.

Briles, who compiled a 65-37 record during his time at Baylor, is one of the most successful coaches in recent college football history. But it's hard to see any school taking a shot on him any time soon.
