I was honestly asking if all the Baylor staff was re-employed other than Briles. I don’t know. I don’t really pay attention to what other schools are doing or there staffs, especially Baylor. I couldn’t even tell you who was coaching there at the height of the scandal other than Art. I didn’t even know Kendal was on staff until he was brought up in the news.
I think I have been pretty clear on my position that I’m not enamored with the hires due to perception and the fact that there were other qualified and baggage-less candidates available, nor am I morally outraged due to lack of clarity on what really happened internally at Baylor, i.e. who did what or didn’t do what in this case. I believe KB’s & RC’s lack of public contrition is understandable. Their lawyers would have told them to shut the hell up about anything Baylor.
My concern is what might happen moving forward from here. They are on staff, period. Some of the case related stuff involving the scandal is hitting the courts this year, specifically in Oct. If things go south in court, it will be during the season. Do we really want that kind of attention on our program and on our school at that time? I think that is a legitimate concern. My guess is during the season, you’ll never see KB or RC in front of a mic.
