One of the most successful, and polarizing, coaches in the history of Texas football can’t get a job in North America, and he’s likely headed over the pond to be around football.
Art Briles has never lived outside of Texas, and the former Baylor coach is, according to sources, “very interested” in coaching an American football team in Italy.
Not Italy, Texas; Florence, Italy.
This would be the equivalent of a low level junior college.
Sources indicate a deal is in the works.
The locale known as the home to the statue of David, the Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens and plenty of red wine also has a football team.
