Art Briles' tenure as offensive coordinator at Grambling State is over less than a week after it started.
The former disgraced Baylor coach said he didn't want to be a "distraction" at the prominent HBCU with a storied football program in northern Louisiana, leaving the program just five days after he was surprisingly hired by coach Hue Jackson.
"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of your coaching staff at Grambling State University," Briles said in a statement released Monday. "Unfortunately, I feel that my continued presence will be a distraction to you and your team, which is the last thing that I want. I have the utmost respect (for) the university, and your players."
