Briles says he's committed to Baylor

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The man at the top of a short list of potential Mike Leach replacements says he's committed to Baylor.

Baylor University head coach Art Briles has affirmed his commitment to leading the Bears' football program, school officials announced on New Year's Day.

"I am proud to be a Baylor Bear and remain committed to making this program a source of pride for the Baylor family," said Briles, who will enter his third season on the Bears' sideline in 2010.

"I feel good about the direction of our program and the foundation that has been built for future success. Our coaching staff is excited to finish this recruiting class strong and start preparations for the 2010 season," he added. "Happy New Year and Sic 'em Bears, Baylor fans."

The Bears are slated to open spring practice for the 2010 season following the University's spring break in mid-March.
