Former Baylor coach Art Briles has hired super agent Jimmy Sexton to help him try to navigate his way back into college football next season. Sexton, who represents Alabama's Nick Saban, Florida State's Jimbo Fisher, USC's Clay Helton and Georgia's Kirby Smart, among other FBS coaches, tried to land Briles as a client two years ago. Briles has told reporters at NFL camps in recent weeks that he expects to be coaching somewhere in 2017. Briles, who was fired by Baylor in late May in the wake of the school's sexual assault scandal, is still named as one of the defendants in a woman's federal Title IX lawsuit against the university.
