Scandalized former Baylor Bears head coach Art Briles has resigned from his newly hired post as Grambling State’s offensive coordinator under former NFL coach Hue Jackson.

The news broke earlier this week, after Jackson came to Briles’ defense.

You can read Jackson’s statement here:

Then Briles quit.

As SBNation points out: “[If] you’re keeping score at home, in the last week Hue Jackson:

  • Damaged his reputation by hiring Art Briles
  • Damaged the reputation of Grambling State by hiring a disgraced coach who was involved in a sex abuse scandal
  • Used his foundation to defend hiring Briles
  • Potentially opened himself, and his organization up to investigation

And he got:

  • Nothing.”

Whoops.
