Baylor’s Jim Grobe has no plans to coach after this season

Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe says he has no plans to coach after this season.

The 64-year-old coach said Monday that he told new Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades early in the season that he didn’t want to be a candidate to be the full-time coach. Grobe says his mindset has always been to help the Bears get through this season, including their bowl game.

Despite some rocky times, Grobe says he has no regrets about coming out of semiretirement after Baylor suddenly dismissed Art Briles last May after a report alleging that the university mishandled complaints of sexual assault.

The Bears play their regular-season finale Saturday at West Virginia. Baylor has a five-game losing streak since starting 6-0 to get bowl eligible.
