Florida State expected to hire ex-Houston OC Kendal Briles

Tampa Bay Times

In a move that's sure to draw controversy, Florida State is expected to hire Houston offensive coordinator Kendal Briles to that same position.

Briles' resignation at Houston was announced following the Cougars'  70-14 loss to Army Saturday in the Armed Forces Bowl.  Multiple outlets reported his move to Florida State.

Briles is a bright offensive mind but also has ties to one of the biggest scandals in recent college football history.

The 36-year-old son of former Baylor coach Art Briles was on his dad's staff during its sexual assault scandal. By Baylor's count, 19 players were accused of committing sexual or domestic assaults. One of the Title IX lawsuits filed against the university counted at least 31 players involved in 52 "acts of rape" from 2011-14.
