It seems Baylor fans are making a push to get fired head coach Art Briles reinstated.
Briles was terminated as the school’s head football coach in May amid allegations of sexual misconduct by the team’s players and its mishandling by the coaching staff.
Now, a grassroots campaign has started with the aim of bringing Briles back to Baylor. Black t-shirts have been designed that feature a picture of the former coach, with the lettering “Bring Back CAB” beneath it.
The idea is to get as many fans in the stands as possible wearing the black t-shirts at Baylor’s November 5 home game against TCU to create a blackout effect in support of the effort. A message on the website selling the shirts reads:
The continued revealing of information surrounding the Baylor scandal investigation is creating a ground swell of support for reinstating Head Football Coach Art Briles. A grassroots campaign has begun to black out the November 5th home game against TCU as a way for Baylor Nation to send a loud and clear message to Baylor administration and the Board of Regents.
Despite the scandal and how it’s ravaged the Baylor football program, the Bears have managed to press on to reach a season-high No. 13 ranking in this week’s AP poll, with a 5-0 record.
