Art Briles Has A Job... In Canada...--UPDATE: He now Doesn't


Update---The Tiger -Cats have backed off. Not citing public pressure, internet pressure or anything else, the team decided it would not be a good idea to bring in a guy (Art Briles) who while well liked among his peers brings baggage that will nor should ever go away....

The Canadian Football League who likely had final say in this and realized the problems Art Briles brings with him probably put pressure on the team. The league and the team released a joint statement:

“Art Briles will no longer be joining the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a coach. We came to this decision this evening following a lengthy discussion between the league and the Hamilton organization. We wish Mr. Briles all the best in his future endeavours.”

The one-liner is: Hey, he got a job before Colin Kaepernick...

Yep... not funny...

Late last week, on an 0-8 start, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' Kent Austin stepped aside and June Jones became head coach. One of Jones' first hires is this guy...

And, let's just say, it's not going over well on social media...

And here... from someone who covers the league... It's an entire thread on the hiring...

Yeah... this was not a good idea...

More when we know more...
