MOUNT VERNON (WBAP/KLIF News) — Former Baylor head football coach Art Briles returns to the practice field Monday.
Briles was hired by Mount Vernon High School earlier this year to be its head coach. The team holds its first practice today, with Briles expected to meet the media for the first time since the hire.
The Mount Vernon Independent School District says Briles will only address the Baylor sexual assault cover-up scandal through a written statement, and that today will likely be his only public appearance before the start of the season.
Briles was hired from Baylor after several women reported that they were assaulted by football players, and that the team and university did nothing about it.
