Last week, scandalized former Baylor Bears head coach Art Briles was announced as the next offensive coordinator at Grambling State, under former NFL head coach Hue Jackson.
But obstacles remain, according to the Monroe News-Star.
From the News-Star: “Grambling had yet to notify the University of Louisiana System that it intends to hire Briles as of late Friday. Once that happens, Briles will still need a majority vote from the 16-member board to formalize his hiring and join first-year Tigers coach Hue Jackson’s staff. The board’s next meeting is set for April 28.”
That’s not a sure thing, the report goes on to note.
