Baylor is in desperate need of a coach next year as the Bears are 6-5 right now with one more game left at West Virginia this weekend. Baylor hired Jim Grobe as the interim head coach after firing Art Briles amid a sexual assault scandal.
The team started out strong winning six straight, but has since dropped its last five games. There are few, if any coaches that are willing to touch that situation with a ten-foot pole. So when someone does come along who wants the job maybe Baylor shouldn’t try to low ball them.
Baylor thinks it’s too good for a coach willing to take essentially less than $1 million a year? That’s absolutely ridiculous and petty for the school to think it’s beneath them to go “begging” for a coach or pay that little money for one. Morris was fantastic as an offensive coordinator at Clemson and has led SMU to a 7-17 record in his two seasons there.
