AP source: Baylor’s Briles gets new 10-year deal

A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that

Baylor coach Art Briles has agreed to a new 10-year contract.

The new contract goes into effect after this season, according

to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the

private university does not release contract details.

The fourth-ranked Bears are 8-0 for the first time in school

history, and fifth in the BCS standings.

Briles is in his sixth season at Baylor, where he has a 41-30

record.
