South­ern Miss passes on Briles:

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

South­ern Mis­sis­sippi de­cided not to hire Art Briles af­ter in­ter­view­ing the for­mer Bay­lor coach, a de­ci­sion Golden Ea­gles coach Jay Hop­son dis­agrees with. Hop­son said Briles “de­serves a sec­ond chance.”

Briles, 63, led the Bears to con­sec­u­tive Big 12 ti­tles in 2013 and 2014. He was fired af­ter an ex­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed in May 2016 that Bay­lor had for years mis­han­dled nu­mer­ous sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions by stu­dents, in­clud­ing some against foot­ball play­ers.

For­mer New Mex­ico ath­letic di­rec­tor Paul Krebs was charged with fraud and money laun­der­ing in Al­bu­querque. The at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice filed a crim­i­nal com­plaint against Krebs in con­nec­tion with a 2015 golf trip to Scot­land and al­le­ga­tions he tried to con­ceal a $25,000 dona­tion.
