DALLAS -- In just three seasons, the Baylor football program has taken a huge turn in relevance not only in the Big 12, but in the national spotlight as well.
It could be thanks to head coach Art Briles, or maybe even 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, but whatever the case may be, Baylor football is here to stay.
Briles is no stranger to turning around down-on-their-luck programs, in just three years as the University of Houston head coach; he made the struggling program a winning one, including leading the Cougars to their first outright conference championship in 10 years during the 2006 season.
Even though many may look at Briles as the reason Baylor is now a successful football program, he doesn't see it that he alone was the difference.
"It wasn't just me," Briles said during the Big 12 Media Days. "Great situtaions, getting good coaches, good energy through support and people who are unafraid to challenge the situations is the key for success."
