Art Briles reportedly staying at Baylor

Cooper Neill

The Baylor Bears are reportedly keeping their coach around after he'd been linked to a few SEC openings.

A hot commodity for teams looking for a new head football coach, Art Briles is reportedly not going anywhere. 247 Sports reports Briles agreed to an extension with the Baylor Bears on Sunday. No terms of the deal were reported.

Briles had been linked to the open jobs at Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee, but he will continue building his program in Waco, Texas, rather than jump ship to the SEC.

Briles has been with Baylor since 2008, when he was hired away from Houston. He's posted a 32-30 record in five seasons with the Bears, including a rare 10-win season for the program in 2011 that ended with an Alamo Bowl win and a Heisman Trophy for quarterback Robert Griffin III.

This season, Baylor (7-5) was the only team to beat Kansas State, keeping the Wildcats out of the BCS National Championship Game. They'll play the UCLA Bruins in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27, the third straight bowl for the Bears.
