During his Fiesta Bowl press conference, Baylor head coach Art Briles told the media that the Redskins have not contacted him about their head coaching gig.
“I don’t think I’ve got a missed call from Dan Snyder, do I? Okay,” Briles said. “It’s all rumors and speculation. I haven’t had any contact with anyone collegiately or NFL.”
Brile does sound intrigued about he idea of bringing his offense to the NFL.
“As far as interest in the NFL, if we’re just being honest, which I like to be, the thing that would interest me would be our style of play at that level,” Briles said. “That’s the only thing that would attract anybody I think in a position that I’m in, would be the style of play. I like how we play from a philosophical, schematic standpoint. I know the rules are different. The limitations on the number of people available in a game. To me that works to an advantage. If they have 46 guys available, there’s going to be a few of them getting tired on one side of the ball.
“That would be the only thing that would spark my interest a little bit on that end. But it’s not something I would pursue.”
