Briles is in his seventh season as an assistant at Baylor and the third as the team's passing game coordinator. He is also regarded as one of the top recruiters in the Big 12.
Kendall Wright and Tevin Reese are among the talented wide receivers Baylor has produced during Briles' tenure. Baylor has ranked in the nation's top 20 in total offense, as measured by yards per play, every season since 2010.
The Bears will face Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day. Briles will be on the field calling plays for that game, according to the report.
