On Thursday, Baylor officials fired head football coach Art Briles in the wake of a report that detailed how the school “created a cultural perception that football was above the rules.”

One longtime recruiting writer thinks he’s at least a candidate. Here’s what 247Sports’ Bobby Burton tweeted today:

Another 247Sports reporter has Brown on a list potential candidates he’s hearing bandied about:
Briles was making more than $5 million annually as the head coach at Baylor, which probably put him in the Top 10 highest paid coaches in the nation. In 2015, USA Today had him pegged at No. 11 with an annual compensation of $4.2 million.
