Baylor's Briles stops by Titans practice

Baylor head coach Art Briles showed up at Tennessee Titans practice on Tuesday to cheer on one of his former star players.

Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright played for four years under Briles, before being taken by Tennessee in the first round of the 2012 draft. Wright amassed 4004 yards receiving and caught 30 touchdowns during his career in Waco.

"He helped me a lot,'' Wright said of Briles, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. "He helped me a lot as far as knowing the game, and what I liked about him is his thing was 'Get me the ball.' That made me happy and made a lot of people happy."

Per Wyatt, Briles watched from the sidelines and chatted with Wright between drills. The receiver said he focused on making a good impression on his former coach.


"It meant a lot to me to have him here,'' Wright said. "That was his first time to get to see me practice since I left. It was exciting for me, so I made sure I did my thing out there."
